The three journalists — David Simon, Bill Marimow and John Carroll — talked to Lawrence Lanahan for his lengthy piece on Simon’s “The Wire.” Lanahan writes: “Many former colleagues of Carroll and Marimow — including admirers of Simon’s work — went on background to warn me of Simon’s bitterness. One former Sun editor praised Marimow and Carroll and then warned me: ‘You don’t want your name on a story you’re going to regret five years from now.'” || Read Simon’s Esquire essay.
