I finally gave up on The Wire a few weeks back but was curious (given my job) what would happen with the Sun reporter who made shit up. In the final mash up at end we briefly see him picking up some parchment at a podium labeled Columbia University. Some of us know that's where the Pulitzers are handed out, but surely it must have gone over the head of many watchers....But we get the point....The female reporter who knew his notebook was empty got shipped out to a bureau so she wouldn't stand in the way of the big prize....Just because I am a giant Steve Earle (who appeared regularly in the show) fan, here is how Season 2 ended, with the big boy's "I Feel Alright."
