David Mills 1961-2010

David Mills, the award-winning journalist and scriptwriter, has died at the age of 48. He wrote for some of the most highly-regarded American TV series of recent years including NYPD Blue, Homicide and The Wire.

There are obituaries in The New York Times and by Jacqueline Trescott and Lisa de Moraes in The Washington Post:
"He was an enormous talent," [David] Simon, who co-created "Treme," said in an obituary he wrote for distribution by HBO. "He loved words and he loved an argument -- but not in any angry or mean-spirited way. He loved to argue ideas. He delighted in it, and he was confident that something smarter and deeper always came from a good argument."
