Carol Sughrue–who many know as a champion of Palestinians, Rohingya, Kashmiris, the Syrian revolution & all freedom struggles & who we love as a deeply kind & generous woman–has been in hospital for kidney surgery.

She’s quite ill but hasn’t lost her wonderful smart-mouth in describing the dipshit man in the next room with the three word vocabulary: fuck, shit, bitch; or in describing the imperious surgeon who thought it was good enough he did incisions & didn’t think he should be asked what the hell he took out or left in.

My nurse friends will be heartened to hear her appraisal that “nurses are really wonderful human beings.”

She expects to heal & needs time away from politics to do that. We send her all our love & miss the hell out of her.
