Simon in Wilmette

Onion: New David Simon Project To Investigate Happy, Upper-Middle-Class Streets Of Wilmette, Ill

That could work, if it were a "Lost"-like sideways universe of "The Wire," complete with McNulty and Lester as, I don't now, happy science teachers or something.

I'm still liking "Treme" a lot, but the smugness sort of gets to me at times, it's something has always shown in Simon's interviews and op-eds but never did on "The Wire." I feel like the show's message is "if you're not from New Orleans, and want to visit, you're not authentic, and you suck."
