David Simon and Gov. Martin O'Malley

As one of the journalists who chronicled Martin O'Malley's enmity for "The Wire" and reported David Simon's threats to move production of the series out of Baltimore, it was with some interest that I read Simon's account of a beer the two recently shared on an Acela train to Baltimore.

I enjoyed the post at Simon's "The Audacity of Despair" blog a lot. I also enjoyed the picture of the two that O'Malley took. (And I thank his office for permission to use it.)

I urge you to visit Simon's blog and read the post -- if you have not already done so.
