    Dealing with anti-vaxxers, climate change deniers, and flat-Earthers, probably. I feel the same way a lot of the time.

    Whilst driving today, I came to one of those intersections where your road goes straight, but there's a 90 degree intersection to one side.  Like a sideways T or something.
    The branching road went over a bridge.
    The branching road was named "Illusion Street."
    So ... successful saving throw on my part?
    (I am not making this up.)

    I was diagnosed with it not too long ago myself.  Fortunately, I'm on a medicine that seems to be doing a good job of slowing, if not outright stopping, the progress of the disease.  You have my sympathy and I wish you the best of luck coping with it.

    I have to address one point that I keep reading and hearing mistakenly asserted. People entering the United States at other than an established checkpoint, who claim refugee status and request asylum, are not entering the country illegally. American law grants them the right to enter and remain within the United States until their claim for asylum is reviewed. This is done because people suffering persecution in their home countries are rarely allowed to travel freely to points of entry in potential sanctuary countries.
     
    Moreover, asylum seekers who enter the United States between those points of entry can exit custody on payment of a bond, and an immigration judge has the jurisdiction to reduce or even waive the bond if circumstances warrant. OTOH people arriving at a point of entry can't pay a bond -- their disposition is wholly at the discretion of ICE officials. Given the publicized attitude of the current American government toward immigrants, that incentivizes crossing the American border at some other location.
