Death March

1. If this were happening in any other country we'd be calling it genocide and ordering air strikes, UN peacekeepers and trials at the Hague.

2. This is so beautifully made. Wordsworth couldn't have done better than the quiet, intelligent, strong, loving, deeply involved, walking narrator.

3. The Weather Channel. Wow. The best documentary I've seen in ages and it's from the Weather Channel. But then again, weather doesn't know about boundaries between states, as global warming language keeps saying. And this is a case of using the weather as a political tool: weaponized weather. It's perfect that this is from them.

Timothy, thanks for sharing. There is an environmental crisis in Central America behind the border crisis. I give a snapshot of that wicked problem in a recent blog post: http://lbarbasrhoden.blogspot.com/2014/06/environmental-crisis-humanitarian-crisis.html
