As some of you may have deduced from the widget on the right, the New Package blog is gearing back up again. Yeah, The Wire is over, but David Simon’s new HBO miniseries, Generation Kill, begins July 13. The seven-week series is based on embedded reporter Evan Wright’s book about the first 40 days of the Iraq invasion. Wright was embedded with The First Recon Battalion, one of the very first units spearheading the invasion, often isolated on their own behind enemy lines as they moved further into the country.
So, give the show – and all of us – a shot. If you’ve read the NuPac before, you know we can bring it.
