David Simon pays tribute to Ashley

ViaSuspect Device is Maureen Ryan’sChicago Tribune column on how the creator of “The Wire” will pay tribute to NOLA blogger Ashley Morris this weekend:

Simon, the creator of “The Wire,” will be in the Chicago area Sunday to
receive an honorary degree and to deliver the commencement address for
DePaul University. Simon’s appearance at the ceremony, which will take
place at Rosemont’s Allstate Arena, sprang from his desire to pay
tribute to Ashley Morris, a DePaul assistant professor and “Wire” fan.
Morris recently passed away at the age of 44.

For the rest
Thank you Mr. Simon
