(discussing whether he hopes "The Wire" will cause reforms of the institutions portrayed in the series) I`ll tell you what, this would be enough for me: The next time the drug czar or Ashcroft or any of these guys stands up and declares, `With a little fine-tuning, with a few more prison cells, and a few more lawyers, a few more cops, a little better armament, and another omnibus crime bill that adds 15 more death-penalty statutes, we can win the war on drugs` -- if a slightly larger percentage of the American population looks at him and goes, `You are so full of shit` ... that would be gratifying.
