    Happy birthday to both!

    And screw you Kring for not giving Jimmy Jean-Louis's character a name until the last season! He was the only black person to survive this casts' four seasons; had just escaped magical negrodom when he was finally given a name and allowed to be more 'active' in his role. The rest were either kilt by character-assignation, character-non-acknowledgement or both. Or they were just plain kilt: Samedi, Simone, etc. Ugh.

    Talent gone to waste. At least two "The Wire" alumni were under-used. The rest's talents were far greater than some of the standing cast, so of course they were underused as well. Ugh, twice!
