The Wall's stores are running low, and Stannis is out here sipping fucking lemon water as he tries to decide what to do about the North, the Umbers, and getting literally anyone to fight for him.

Many immigrants are not informed of their legal and civil rights as they pursue asylum or face deportation. Several nonprofits are providing free legal representation and other services for immigrants and the families of those detained. United We Dream, the American Civil Liberties Union, Mijente, Immigrant Families Together, Save the Children and the Immigrant Justice Corps are coordinating advocacy and services at a national level. Local organizations providing legal aid include the New Sanctuary Coalition in New York, Las Americas in El Paso and Raices in Texas, Americans for Immigrant Justice in Florida and the Denver Immigrant Legal Services Fund in Colorado.

Most charities say the best way to help is through financial donations, not product donations. Well-vetted groups that provide humanitarian aid to migrants include Pueblo Sin Fronteras, an organization with two shelters along the border of the Sonoran Desert, and Border Angels, a volunteer coalition that provides water, free legal help, and emergency services.

You can also donate to Immigrant Families Together, a group started by women in New York, working to raise bond money for parents who were separated from their children at the border. They also work to arrange long-term housing and pro bono attorneys for immigrants while they await trial. (In one instance, Kristen Bell helped the organization reach the $30,000 bond goal for a mother named Delmi.)

Organizations United We Dream, the American Civil Liberties Union, and Mijente are also helping coordinate advocacy and services for families.

The king of lies... but which king is it? Jon watches as Mance (????????) is burned alive by Stannis and his red witch, then realizes he'd rather eat at the library for lunch instead of the cafeteria.

We are joined in scolding our boy Jon Snow for his mean behavior to actual best character Gilly by HANNAH from the beloved and excellent Game of Owns.

Oh, this is the one where Janos dies, also. Kill the boy.

UPDATED VERSION - hey all! thanks for being patient, we had to reupload due to some track incompatibility between us three.  Now they're all playing mostly nicely with each other, so give it a redownload if you haven't already listened.
