@wendolen Xeni Jardin’s courageous, intimate account of being diagnosed with breast cancer. A must-read link

@rachelsklar Xeni tops herself in bravery, honesty and awesomeness. Godspeed. RT @xeni I wrote something about my diagnosis.

@robinsloan If people must travel to this cold planet, how lucky are we that some can think & feel & write the way @xeni can.

@robpegorara The most amazing writing I’ve read this week, this month, this year? @xeni on her cancer diagnosis.

@xeni The more I experience of life, the more I believe that compassion is the only logical response to life.

Broken Arms for Egypt

@monaeltahawy Nov 24 I AM FREE …12 hours with Interior Ministry bastards and military intelligence combined. Can barely type – must go xray arms after CSF pigs beat me. @Sarahngb is coming to kindly take me to the hospital. Besides beating me, the dogs of CSF subjected me to the worst sexual assault ever

@monaeltahawy Nov 30 Left arm problem is that break in my ulnar bone is displaced. Regular breaks fuse when bones are aligned. Break in right metacarpal
