Lynn Johnston @lynnjohnstonlitI’m reading The Only Plane in the Sky by @vermontgmg and awed by the craft of collecting, editing and piecing together the multitude of voices into a page-turning, seamless narrative. Highly recommend.
Also makes me want to rep more oral history projects. #mswl

Will Wilkinson 🌐 @willwilkinsonEspecially if you're an older authoritative looking management type, use your social capital. Harangue ICE or CBP agents about warrants, demand badge numbers, deny their authority to be there or do what they're doing. The point isn't to be right, the point is to stall.
