I first met Pam while Mike and I were on book tour last year in Durham, NC. We all had dinner together along with some local Traction folks at a great Mexican place in advance of our book reading, and instantly we struck up an engaging conversation on blog media. Her insight on the role of LGBT blog media and ideas on improving organizations in the LGBT ecosystem blew me away, as it does for many. I've had the good fortune to collaborate with Pam on some projects and discussions since then, and it's no exaggeration to say I think she is one of the smartest people in LGBT and mainstream progressive politics.
I'm saying this because this morning Pam went into surgery for a laproscopic hysterectomy, which is made all the more complicated because she has insulin-dependent diabetes.
She just came out and is in recovery, but it will be up and down. So here's to joining a blogswarm of hope for recovery for Pam. And as you all know because we ask for it, making a living while blogging is hard, particularly because Pam has to pay her deductible in advance (what a great health care system we have), along with other unforeseen expenses. I just popped in a few shekels, and if you like the contributions she makes to blog media, please consider doing the same. Whatever you do, join me in sending some love.
