Kennedy School class on The Wire

Add Harvard’s Kennedy School into the mix of colleges and universities teaching The Wire to their students. Here’s an explanation of why that was published a couple weeks ago in the Washington Post.

To D’Angelo, the formal labor market is fundamentally unfair. People are not rewarded according to their true worth, and powerful institutions regularly exploit those with less power. Social inequality is the inevitable result — the McNugget inventor doesn’t get his due. “It ain’t about right. It’s about money,” D’Angelo tells the young dealers.

Reminds me of the The Snot Boogie Rules. “Got to. It’s America, man.”

(Thanks, Dave!)
