    Wandering Eye: Omar and the ACLU, WaPo on Yahoo, Russ Smith on Charles Street, and more
    Back in 2005, when HBO was considering canceling "The Wire" after season three, City Paper published a “top 10” piece listing reasons not to do so. No. 3 was Michael K. Williams’ character, Omar, with the list deeming him “arguably the show’s single greatest achievement." And back when then-U.S. Sen. Barack Obama was running for president in 2008, he called Omar his favorite character on his favorite show. Given the show's focus on criminal-justice themes, it seems appropriate that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has made Williams the group’s “celebrity ambassador for ending mass incarceration,” and Williams tweeted yesterday that he’s “proud” while posting his “Ambassador” card on Instagram. He joins a host of other ACLU ambassadors, including Harry Belafonte, Melissa Etheridge, and Cindi Lauper, who advocate for reform by using social media, appearing at news conferences, and talking to lawmakers.

    Hopes and Dreams

      I am currently a senior in high school, but come Saturday, I will be a high-school grad! (Fuck yeah!) The only thing I'm worried about besides my hopes and dreams, and making it in the real world? My sex life. I'm a virgin. When I go online, I see...
