With all the tender concern President Trump and Nancy Pelosi have been heaping on “Dreamers” of late, you’d think the media would notice and pepper us with stories about these “incredible kids,” as Trump calls them. Alas, no. Our tedious media drones refuse to provide us with moving human interest stories about the Dreamers.

I am in a darkened movie theatre in Washington D.C.’s Georgetown neighborhood. It’s a long way from the Ioka in Exeter, New Hampshire, where the upholstery had seen better days and the screen was little more than a mottled suggestion.
