"But it's a corruption to start giving people what they want in story.

Because the truth is, the audience is like a child. That's not to say that they're children, the audience is made up of a lot of different people.

Some of them smart, some of them stupid.

But if you ask them as a collective, 'What do you want?', they'll always say 'I want more of what I saw before that I liked."

- David Simon : The Wire, Generation Kill, Treme

How often do we as teachers focus on what we actually, truly honestly need?

For our students?

For our schools?

For our selves?
