In 2002, HBO’s drama “The Wire” changed what everyone expected of crime dramas. Before “The Wire,” police on television always solved crimes in an hour. In this series, we saw that the battle against drug trafficking is never finished in one hour, or ever, really. That’s much like how the battle against Iraqi or Afghan insurgents isn’t over just because the military says it is.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
