the rise in urbanity requires all of us to master the multicultural beast that is the city. We figure out the city or we fail.
I'm intrigued here (and above) by this notion of "mastery" or "figuring it out" that seems to important to Simon. I wonder if that really should be the goal. I wonder, even, if that was the effect or point of "The Wire": the city and its machinations remained elusive throughout that series.
