How unfortunate that the parents of so many children decided to break the law and put their whole family in such a heart breaking situation.

Ma Ga how unfortunate so many Americans refuse their sympathies for so many parents doing whatever it takes to give their children a better life than the heart breaking situations they left in their home countries.

Dear This American Life. Can you please produce a new episode that ISN'T somehow about Trump, politics, immigration, climate change, or some other such hot button topic? It is just so repetitive and exhausting. Maybe for a change, you could just make an interesting story about some other aspect of life in America.

PK Bratney All partisans can talk about is things they have to promote. They seem to have no other purpose in life!

PK Bratney you're not alone from what I see in the comments here! I used to listen and only just got back into it this week so maybe I'll really in for it. :) 99% Invisible is pretty good and generally politics-free if you haven't heard it.

wasn't it also David Kasselbaum a few episodes back who felt great despair about us being alone in the universe? hmm.. I feel a little voyeuristic or something, like I'm reading deep secret diary entries...

"They did everything they said they would do, and we just didn't see that coming." Infuriating.
