Once I started this blog with the aim to tell the life and love story of my beloved pet duck Pipke. Unfortunate she died on September 14, 2009. She became 14 years and 3 months old. She was my faithful mate and the best that could happen to me. Under the label “Pipke” you can find all I wrote about her. On my second blog: ”Life Story of a Duck” I started to tell her story from her birth on. If you are interested to read it then click on the link: "Pipke's Life Story"! Hope to see you there!
It was an interview with the American journalist: David Simon (Washington 1960).
He was a crime beat reporter for the Baltimore Sun, and now he's the award-winning screenwriter of HBO's critically-acclaimed: The Wire.
I can assure you, this was one of the best interviews I've seen in years.
We really sat on the edge of our seat, for “one and a half” hour.
We had never heard about him, nor about his brainchild: The Wire.
This interview went not only about The Wire, but also about “Capitalism” these days.
In his opinion, or as far as we can conclude: actually, capitalism in itself is not bad – but without a social angle it's on-ethic. On longer term It even can mean the perdition of the Western world.
He spoke about the rich getting richer, and only thinking on themselves.
About president Obama's plans.
About Social Security and the fact that 200 million people don't have a Health Insurance in America. Also about the improvidence of the car industry. They only thought in short terms and getting rich in no time – without thinking on the future.
It went about many other interesting issues -- he spoke about them with such a clear view: I have never heard such a profound decomposition of society as it exists these days.
His eventual conclusion was in fact not so hopeful.
I've tried to find the same interview on the internet, but unfortunate it's not available.
I have listened to this interview (on this site click on "must-watch interview" if you want to see it) and here he also speaks about the same issues, although the interview I have seen went more profound into the subjects.
I hope it will interest you too.
In fact, not such a joyful subject to start the year, but this is reality.
This is the world from today.
You should take into account: English is not my native language and I've learned it through self study. I know it's not at all perfect. Therefore: knowing my shortcomings I always think of the quote Henry Van Dyke wrote: “Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best". I work on it to achieve a better result. Practice makes perfect!
