As I write this quick appreciation from Gilbert, AZ suffering a 25 year drought, my door is open to a quenching light rain after several months of no precip at all. For a few minutes at least, I’ve chosen to deny climate and embrace weather!
I’ll be spreading links to your show and this episode in particular. Your work does not go unnoticed. Thank you for the rain- if only to rinse the salty tear streaks from my face after gorging on the smorgasbord of clips relating to our treatment of the most vulnerable huddled masses of humanity that present at our shores.
Special note to the very fine N-word president haters who’ve stumbled here: There is much joy for you also to foam over within this episode because truth is often ugly and shameful.
Please leave an iTunes review and a 5 star rating. Every little bit helps.
