Eulogy for a Gangster

We hear at GITW suffered a great loss this week. One of the greatest homosexual gangsters of all time was gunned down as he bought his soft pack Newports at the local convenience store. A young kid came at the king and did not miss.

A Robin Hood of sorts, who followed his own code of justice, Omar Little was a violent killer, let there be no doubt, but he stood against the established drug dealers on the mean streets of Baltimore. Rising to prominence after his lover was killed, Omar was a beloved anti-hero who stalked the streets in a trench coat with a shotgun, killing those who stood in his way, but never on Sunday.

The newspaper didn't mention his murder and even the coroner switched the name on his body bag. No one outside the corner cared about Omar, but for the faithful Wire watchers, he will be sorely missed...even more then Stringer Bell.

Pour one out. RIP Omar.

I don't know who the hell you're talking about, but whenever a homosexual gangster dies, so does a little part of me.

RIP guy.

There totally aren't enough homosexual gangsters in the universe.

Now that Omar is gone, my favorite living character is Bubbles. And if he dies, it's only because he went on to live in the future in Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Red said...

Bubbles in on Sarah Connor Chronicles? Damn. I knew I should be watching that show.

I think my favorite living character is Bunk
