Ed Norris the man?

I tried to take the high road. I did!

But my friend just sent me this and I can't resist. Thanks, buddy!

Here's what my friend wrote:
Not that you needed me to but I took it upon myself to defend you by sending Ed a nasty gram.

Ed,

I listened to the show today and was very disappointed. You spent 3 breaks with Mike Wingler, an old washed up alcoholic who can barely put a sentence together. You listen to his lies and BS and treat him like a hero? WTF!!! Moskos comes on and you treat him like a piece of shit. I graduated the academy with Moskos and worked with him in the Eastern District. When working in the Eastern you don’t have to be on the streets for more than a day to realize what’s going on. He was a very good cop for the time he served. I worked in the Department from 1999 until 2003 and for those 4 years I never received any sense of direction much less a “strategy” from the brass. My job was to drive a beat up patrol car, chase 911 calls, clear corners, and take home an insulting salary. The streets were the same on my last day as they were on my first as they still are today. So if you want to pat yourself on the back for a job well done, go ahead. Good job Ed!!! Perhaps you should stop being so bull headed, take a step back, listen to criticism, and learn from it. If you would have done this earlier in life maybe you would still be a cop and not a DJ.

AFTERTHOUGHT: Ask the 774 mothers whose children were murdered between 2000 and 2003 how good of a job they think Ed Norris did as Baltimore Police Commissioner. Get off your high horse Big Ed!

I guess I forgot that being on his show wasn't about me. It was about him.
