Video: David Simon on Treme, New Orleans, the Drug War, Obama, The Wire

became a fellow traveler of the libertarians,” says the acclaimed
writer and television producer David Simon. “And then a great
disappointment to them.” Editor in Chief Nick Gillespie sat down with Simon
last week to discuss Treme, the state of New Orleans, the
drug war, President Obama, school choice, private prisons, the
newspaper industry, and Simon’s antipathy towards libertarians.
