Your status as a famous television writer won’t save you from the onslaught of ridicule of New Yorkers when you tweet (sorry, post on the website formerly known as Twitter) some dumb stuff about the Big Apple. David Simon, of The Wire fame, learned that the hard way when he decided to take to the internet and complain about a $50 speeding ticket for driving 36 mph in a 25 mph school zone at 5 a.m. in July. And many – from lawmakers to journalists to the city Department of Transportation itself – read him to filth. They correctly noted that the entire city’s speed limit is 25 mph, Simon was still speeding and he’s complaining about the consequences of breaking the law. That didn’t stop him from continuing to fight his losing battle. Word of the wise to Simon: we don’t know how things are done in Baltimore, but that stuff doesn’t fly here.
