Omar's Coming!

Of course Omar Little is everybody's- including President Obama's-  favourite character. He's the one free agent in a corporate world. Everybody else- the police, the criminals, the union men, the politicians, the corner boys- are trapped inside hierarchies, bound by rules and cemented together by rituals, like- for example- those ghastly police wakes- where the corpse is laid out on the bar and the mourners get bladdered to the sound of the Pogues. They're trapped in The Game. Only Omar- with his private code and his fierce personal loyalties- floats clear. Others demand and enforce respect; only Omar deserves it.
