The fear of refugees from the religious wars in the Middle East reminds me of the fear of Jewish refugees in the 1930s and 1940s. 
The similarities between two very different moments in European history.

Then there's the weird refusal of the richest Arab countries to help their fellow Arabs and Muslims in spite of welcoming millions of foreign workersL https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2015/09/04/the-arab-worlds-wealthiest-nations-are-doing-next-to-nothing-for-syrias-refugees/

I'm happy the US political debate has increasingly focused on the effects on workers and the middle class, but we really need fact-checkers like Krugman to keep the discussion from veering off into BS.

This is something that Prof. Fritz Stern discussed in his studies of fascisms in various countries.

The "baby jails" are shameful.
These privately run, unlicensed lockups are no place for children.

The Danish citizenship process includes a test that is admirably challenging.
The US citizenship process includes a test that is laughably easy. I wish it could be made more challenging (though with some provision for applicants who have not been educated as much as others). 
The government, which has been tightening rules on immigration, has made little effort to hide the goal of the exam: to make it significantly harder to become Danish.

Story
Introduction
I am a lawyer in San Francisco. I've been a sole practitioner handling immigration cases of all kinds since 1993. I have a small office with a great legal assistant, and I love my job. I have super smart clients from all over the world building the tech world (H1Bs, Ls, Es, PERM, etc.). I have asylum seekers who've escaped from hideous abuse. I have couples and families who want to be together.

I've send many people to them for help and they've always done a great job. When you're in a tough spot, you want to have Cathy and Mary in your corner. Many years ago, Cathy and Mary mentored me and many other aspiring young lawyers in tenants' rights advocacy. They know the law like the back of their hand, they're not afraid of anybody, they're careful and on time, and they have hearts of gold. They're real mensches.

I believe this is always the best way to find a good professional of any sort is to ask another professional in the right field for the professionals they would go to or send someone to. I was referred to Atty. Rivera by a fellow immigration lawyer I respect.It is early in the case, but his professionalism to date, and the professionalism of his assistant Maria Coronado, give me faith that he will take care of my client well. I'll report later how it goes.

I have 3 immediate family members there, so it's a place with a lot of intense memories. My only complaint is that for cremations, they only allow 1 family member to attend. It felt weird to have this major event treated like an administrative detail was weird. I hope they change this. As for Thomas Fredlik's joke, Gunn does have plenty of future MDs, so I'm sure exploration was been discussed. However, as one of the jr. high and high school students who hung out there sometimes late at night, it was comforting to have ancestors watching over my early experiments in ... never mind. FYI, all the students treated the place with surprising respect.

I knew they were good, cheap, and very conscientious all the 3 or 4 years I lived in the lower Haight and took my clothes to them. Now that I've moved to SOMA, I realize they are WAY better than anyone I've gone to since. They're open insanely long hours - I would drop off at 7:30 AM to get to work by 8 AM, and they were always there, plus Saturdays and most holidays. They got out stains other cleaners couldn't get out. Burning Man mud, wine stains, dog stains, etc., on silk, leather, etc., - no problem. They'd find my clothes every time without complaining though I'd lost my ticket again and again. If a button got knocked of, they're replace it (even on shirts with cheap, crappy buttons). We had to clean a huge pile of stuff (don't ask why), so they gave us a huge discount. I had an old briefcase of my dad's, mildewed from being out in the garage for years. They said they'd see what they could do, I said I knew it might be impossible, but I'd pay anyway. They cleaned it 5 times, getting almost all the smell out, then wouldn't take my money since they hadn't gotten it out 100%. In SOMA I can't find anyone a 1/10 as good.

We had great experiences over several years boarding our dogs there. The place is beautiful: rollling hills with acres of space, a big pond, etc. The dogs play in big, happy groups & always seem sad to leave the place. Roland even managed to train our feisty (read: pig-headed, embarrassingly spoiled) lakeland terrier to obey almost like a normal dog -- which I predicted would be impossible -- so I can attest to their skill and persistencem in the face of daunting odds. (BTW, in contrast, when we had to leave our new dog (golden retriever-poodle mix - totally chill) in an overnight place near our house, he came home with a new, aggressive attitidue toward strange dogs - not a positive development. We're sticking with Patrick Canine in the future).
