Attorney General Eric Holder at a press conference the other day:
"I want to speak directly to [Co-creator Ed] Burns and Mr. Simon: Do another season of The Wire,” said as the audience laughed and applauded.“That’s actually at a minimum. … If you don’t do a season, do a movie. We’ve done HBO movies, this is a series that deserves a movie. I want another season or I want a movie. I have a lot of power Mr. Burns and Mr. Simon.”
David Simon's response:
"The Attorney-General's kind remarks are noted and appreciated. I've spoken to Ed Burns and we are prepared to go to work on season six of The Wire if the Department of Justice is equally ready to reconsider and address its continuing prosecution of our misguided, destructive and dehumanising drug prohibition."

These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like Tjentište, Kozara and Kadinjača), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and Niš).

I asked John to send me a few digital pictures of Hoggle. After receiving the pictures, I knew I COULD reconstruct Hoggle, though not necessarily HOW it would be accomplished.
