My fascination with Stringer Bell

I know I am late, but I have totally become addicted to the show The Wire.  I have been watching it on Netflix for the past month or so and just finished season 3.  I was so fascinated with the relationship of Stringer Bell and Avon Barksdale.  Two men who came from the same neighborhood, but looked at business and how to run things a little differently.

If you have watched the show you know that Stringer Bell gets killed at the end of season 3 (I am still distraught about this).  Don't know why but the character of Stringer Bell fascinated me for so many reasons. His looks, his business style, his loyalty (or lack there of), and so many more things. I question if I came in contact with Stringer Bell would he be as fascinating? Is my fascination of him just because he is a tv character? 

Knowing that he is a drug mogul, but has money, would his personality and his swagger (don't like that word....but it fits), would they make me overlook his illegal and cold hearted ways? 

Just some thoughts.....

Nice article, I stopped watching Te Wire shortly after Stringer got killed and Avon got locked up again. The whole show was about these two guys, not that idiot McNullty or those others that don't really matter.
