Indeed, we all respected her privacy, which is a good thing, but I'm so very sad about how she ended up so reclusive when she was ill.


I can't stop thinking about that specifically and oh the loss of Rob for her. It is that I am so discombobulated about mostly. We are all thinking about our own mortality here, yet we wonder how Rob's death could be so 'sudden' when he had the acumen to disable pogge.ca, so he knew what he was faced with. So young, it doesn't make sense to me. We don't know details, we never will, so we find acceptance somehow. It is all we can do.


And even tho pogge would never approve of this, I give you for Friday night: This Mortal Coil http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFWKJ2FUiAQ#t=142

I most certainly don't wish cancer, or painful death, on him, or Rob Ford. Illness and death aren't punishments; we all die, and I know some very health-centred people who have experienced horrible diseases

I just don't have any "human fellow-feeling" for someone who has collaborated in ecocide.

As another CBC poster has said:
  • v0ci3cau3a
  He seems to ignore the carcinogens unleashed on the unsuspecting public with his slashing of environmental protection.  There is no vaccine for that.

I'm sure it won't make you feel any differently toward him  but I was reading today about Peter's bout with cancer also. I don't know if I missed this at the time or if I just forgot about it:

I found her twitter page (which was pretty much only devoted to Assange & co, and I suspect we had battles royal about that, as while of course I agreed with the importance of Wikileaks, I've seen too much shit leftist men have done to women comrades to absolve him of possible wrongdoing when in Sweden)

but never her Facebook page. I've always refused to be on either of those, as I didn't have to be for professional reasons (only LinkedIn) and was very suspicious if not to say paranoid about how revelatory they were of one's private life.

I'll have to write something on the memorial page, but of course I have no kind thoughts towards Peter Kent or any other partner in ecocide. And it would harm innocent grieving people if I said something sophomoric like my thoughts are with you except the eco-criminal sibling. I'll have to find a formulation that is elegant without any "fellow feeling" for an educated piece of shit who signs in to planetary destruction.

It was in fact on babble where I read oldgoat's response. In part, he said, "She was one of the first babblers I met in real life back in the very early days, and we'd get together periodically.  Coincidentally, she moved to Oshawa and lived about a dozen houses down from me.  I saw less of her then as she had become over the last years extremely reclusive, so I respected her privacy but always sort of worried."

I expect, although I don't know for sure, that her family would have seen to the kitties. As they would be the ones dealing with her belongings etc., I imagine they would make sure the cats were taken care of.


Her younger brother, Arthur, wrote this on her Facebook page:
____________________________


A wonderful sister, a true friend and a consummate literary professional. Susan's sudden passing leaves all those closest to her struggling to find the right words. But in the dedications of her compatriots online at rabble.ca, babble.ca and the much-missed pogge.ca, and right here of course, we are consoled realizing how many lives she touched, both virtually and in person, with that joyous smile and laughing voice. Thanks from all of us.
---------------------------------------------

Frank (aka oldgoat) had also lost touch with her, I believe. There were so many different threads running on so many different Facebook pages that I'm having trouble finding his comment. I'll keep looking.

I have no idea how on earth I can find out whether the surviving cats are safe and happy. I'm really concerned about this (obviously skdadl would have been as well).


 I've been wondering this as well.

The only one who *might* have any knowledge about this would be oldgoat.  Do you have any way of getting in touch with him?
