The HBO drama The Wire is “a fictional television show that, despite going off the air eight years ago, is proving its relevance today in classrooms around the country, including at St. Olaf College,” notes a Star Tribune story that profiles a class taught by political science professor Joshua Anderson.
The class uses The Wire — a critically acclaimed series that dives deep into issues of urban life, focusing on drugs and gangs, education and media, and, most centrally, law enforcement — to explore race and politics in America.
“The ever-presence of police brutality in The Wire gives some very timely and very realistic material for thinking about problems of policing in the United States,” Anderson tells the Star Tribune. “But what I like about The Wire is that it is fictional, and I think that takes some of the emotional stakes out of the conversation about race.”
The paper notes that since the series wrapped in 2008, “it has become a companion piece to courses on everything from poverty to ethics, in classrooms from Harvard to the University of California, Berkeley.”
The St. Olaf class, which meets daily for four weeks in January, requires students to watch the first three seasons of the series — about two episodes per night for homework, plus accompanying readings.
St. Olaf student Emnet Shibre ’16 says the show has helped her realize how complex issues like officer-involved shootings can be.
“Something that watching The Wire has done for me is give me more sympathy for the situations that officers find themselves in,” she says.

The Carleton College men’s tennis team improved to 3-0 this season with a 9-0 sweep of Hamline University. Rookies Andrew Qi and Aaron Goodman prevailed in both their singles and doubles matches.
The Carleton College men’s basketball team drained a season-best 12 three pointers—including a career-best six triples for Mitchell Biewen —as the Knights completed a season series sweep of Macalester College with a 73-66 road victory. Biewen finished with a game-high 20 points—all in the second half.
Cece Leone notched her first career double-double to lead three Knights in double figures, but the Carleton College women’s basketball team was unable to withstand a late Macalester College scoring surge and ended up dropping a 67-59 result in overtime.

A document that has been unanimously approved by governmental bodies in Faribault, Lonsdale, Dundas and Rice County found its way to the Northfield City Council during its work session on Tuesday. There, it was met with uncertainty.
I haven’t given out one of these in a long time, but here we go, the Horse’s Ass Award to Xcel Energy and Office of Administrative Hearings, based on the bias and double standards for participation and obstructions to intervention in the latest Xcel Energy rate case (PUC Docket GR-15-826).
Yes, Intervention in the rate case denied again:
And I quote:
Further, the Petition states that purposes for which No CapX 2020 was “specifically formed” (fn omitted) was to participate in dockets which are now closed, raising the question of why No CapX 2020 continues to exist.
H-E-L-L-O?!?!?! This rate case docket is all about shifting the CapX 2020 and MISO MVP 17 project portfolio transmission costs from one scheme to another. I specifically cited all the references to CapX 2020, MISO MVP, and transmission.
Intervention Petition II
Intervention Petition I
And in a parallel track, note the double standard in pleading.
- Note that Xcel has objected only to the Overland/No CapX 2020 intervention.
- Note that Xcel has not objected to those who participated in the “e21 Initiative” which is the basis for this rate case “multi-year rate plan” and transmission shift.
- Note how little the other “intervenors” say.
- Note they do not state their interests.
- Note they do not state how their interests are different from general ratepayers.
- Note they do not state how their interests will not be represented by OAG and Commerce.
OAH has approved Interventions of “The Commercial Group,” “Suburban Rate Authority,” and “City of Mineapolis.” I’m sure the approval of “Clean Energy Organizations” will soon follow, despite the lack of specific pleading and the apparent conflict with one “attorney” representing so many organizations that either have differing positions and interests, or which are adequately represented by other organizations and don’t need to intervene… funny how this double standard works…
Read the Petitions:
Check out each of these petitions. Look at the pleading, what’s stated, and as importantly, what is NOT stated. What are their interests? How are the “interests” different than general ratepayers in their class? How are their interests not represented by Office of Attorney General and/or MN Dept. of Commerce?
So what to do? Participating in the public hearing is not sufficient, and if that’s the limited offering, well, there’s no Discovery for a public participant. What’s next? Fight for the privilege of an unfunded intervention, as if there’s nothing else to do? The issues raised by Overland/No CapX 2020 will not be addressed otherwise. And thos overt quashing of participation is not consistent with the “public” in “Public Utilities Commission” and the Commission’s mandate.
Meanwhile, FERC just denied the 2010 Petition for Intervention too in the case regarding the cost allocation for these CapX and MISO MVP projects, yes, that took them 5 1/2 years to do, so why now? Check this out:
Odd that should come up now… naaaah, not really.
