Wire creator to atty gen'l: "Thanks for your interest in another season; end the war on drugs and we'll talk"

Last summer, US attorney general Eric Holder made a public plea for another season of The Wire to be produced; series creator David Simon emailed a response saying he would do another season if Holder ended the war on drugs.

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.
