When Alan Suderman called The Wire creator David Simon a “loud-mouthed TV dude” for his views on the Kwame Brown affair, Mayor for Life-turned-Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry was not having it! But they found common ground on Twitter by talking about Clay Davis, and now everything’s cool.

  2. @AlanSuderman David Simon is a GREAT WRITER! We didn’t have a problem with Baltimoreans in our biz when they were saving our asses in 1812.

  8. @marionbarryjr No way! Not meant as insult, but as objective adjective. I’m loudmouth too and there ain’t no shame in my game.
