  1. Terrific show. I remember this well because I lived in LA at the time and had a new baby. The hysteria was pretty scary. Everyone in LA had their kid in a preschool. I had no idea it also became a nationwide panic. These two writers seem eminently qualified to write this and to have done great and insightful research into all aspects. Fascinating. A must read.
