David Simon on the Death of Normal

"Regardless of what happens with his second term, Barack Obama's great victory has already been won: We are all the other now, in some sense. Special interests? That term has no more meaning in the New America. We are all -- all of us, every last American, even the whitest of white guys -- special interests. And now, normal isn't white or straight or Christian. There is no normal. That word, too, means less with every moment. And those who continue to argue for such retrograde notions as a political reality will become less germane and more ridiculous with every passing year."
