Bunk’s Retirement Ticket

20 Apr
April 20, 2007

Every now and then a drawer or a file cabinet yields some small treasure.   Reproduced here is my ticket to the retirement party of Oscar “The Bunk” Requer, a veteran of the Baltimore Police Department’s homicide unit who, yes, was the inspiration for the character that Wendell Pierce made his own over five seasons of The Wire.

And yes, Wendell went with me to the party.  Bunk squared, as it were.

    Squared? Don’t you mean ‘times two’?

    Fun story, but 35$ for a cash bar at Martin’s East? I hope some of that loot went to a good cause. I’d hold my retirement party at Chaps!
