Tha Mrs. cleverly deduced that Season 4 of "The Wire" would be available for free through our esteemed cable company's On Demand service. So if you're a customer of Philly's finest, and you slacked on "The Wire" in 2006, nix the show from your Netflix queue and get the most out of your coaxially delivered subscription television services.
I'm probably the last non-Patriots-fan to come to this realization: I liked the Jimmy Johnson-era Cowboys -- with all of their coked-up douchebaggery, evil-looking hairdos, circus-act hype and general Texas bullshit -- more than I like the Bill Belichick/Tom Brady version of the Pats.
A little note to my friends at Phawker, the Washington CityPaper, and any other blog-sponsoring commercial entity (I'm also thinking of you, NYT and WSJ) that wants to create a solid community of blog readers: Learn from the Gawkers and BoingBoings of the world, and let your regular commenters create identities for themselves -- y'know, you click on their username, and you get a page that shows all of their comments in one place. People comment for free; at least do them the courtesy of allowing them to display their efforts as a single body of work.
(For what it's worth, I don't think BoingBoing got around to this kind of thing until earlier this year. But then again, BoingBoing has no trouble keeping readers.)
