Bullet-Points Without The Bias ~ We’re bringing you #SmartHERNews.

Oct 30, 2023

We have the NEW data and a NEW record: 2023 now has the highest number of border "encounters" in the history of modern data collection. 

While so many focus on the U.S. southern border, we tackle why the U.S. northern border matters too - and ask the key questions: Who does border patrol "encounter"? What do they encounter? And why does it matters? 

We work through the data and fill in the blanks - including how many encounters include those screened for ties to terrorism.


  • News you can use: "Children are three times more likely to be struck by a car on Halloween night than any other day of the year."
  • A look at the why the AP Stylebook avoids the term "terrorist" for Hamas and why this matters.
  • Why the United States voted against a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas at the United Nations.
  • A unique legal case vs. former President Trump, with an argument that takes us back to the Civil War.
  • What regional differences in candy preferences tell us about the state of America (or not!).
