Don’t know about you, but I’m going to 1) eat a dependable Saltillo plate at Juanita’s and 2) take advantage of Comcast’s On Demand feature to get an early viewing of tomorrow night’s opening episode of the new season of HBO’s “The Wire,” the best dramatic series ever to appear on television. This season, the setting is a Balitmore newsroom, in a time of dwindling investment in news staff and a changing media landscape. Gritty reality, in other words.

Argue with that assessment if you dare. Or other topics. An open line for Saturday.


Anybody watch the ABC debate in New Hampshire? NY Times blog on the Republican opener indicates Romney nailed Huckabee on a mischaracterization on who was firstest with the mostest support for sending more troops to Iraq.
