MESSAGE FROM NAIROBI….I don’t normally act as a mail drop, but there are exceptions to every rule. I just received this email:

I work at a V.A. hospital with the frequent contributor known on Political Animal as “Shameless Hussy” I just got off the phone with her, she called from the ground in Nairobi. She is on her way to Chad to a group of refugee camps across the border from Darfur, and had only a few minutes before leaving the last vestiges of civilization. (I think she and I have different ideas of what constitutes civilization.) Anyway, she asked me to pass that along because several of her “thread buddies” had asked her to pass info through you. If I hear from her again, I will pass on the update.

SH is doing the work the rest of us only chatter about here in blogland. Wish her well.
