I think the doctors are trying to reconnect the thingamajig to the whatchamacallit. He’d better hope his doc in e.r. isn’t named Mohammed.

At 6:30 p.m., cbs reported Rushdie had been stabbed in his neck AND abdomen. They reported he was still in surgery.

If he’s been in surgery this long, his odds of surviving without major aftereffects are poor—if he survives.

Who wants to survive if major bodily functions are destroyed?

Not moi.

And where was security in all this?

(CNN)Salman Rushdie -- a celebrated author and winner of the world's top literary prizes whose writings generated death threats -- was attacked and stabbed at least twice on stage Friday before a lecture he was scheduled to give at the Chautauqua Institution in western New York, State Police said.

Rushdie was on a ventilator Friday evening and could not speak, his agent, Andrew Wylie, told the New York Times.

"Salman will likely lose one eye; the nerves in his arm were severed; and his liver was stabbed and damaged," Wylie
told the Times. "The news is not good."

The suspect was identified as Hadi Matar, 24, from Fairview, New Jersey, State Police Troop Commander Major Eugene J. Staniszewski said in a Friday evening news conference. Police are working with the FBI and local authorities to determine the motive.
Authorities are also working to obtain search warrants for several items found at the scene, including a backpack and electronic devices, Staniszewski said. Authorities believe the suspect was alone but are investigating "to make sure that was the case," Staniszewski added.

Here's the latest phrase that's gotten on my nerves.

"Police are trying to establish a motive."

It was quoted in the Salmon Rushdie story--and is standard writing after an attempted or actual murder.

Why did the perp do what he did?

But does finding out why someone attacks/kills another person really matter--especially if it was done in front of a crowd of people?

Does figuring out the mindset of a nutjob change the fact that an attempted or actual murder was committed?

By telling us those 7 words,police infer to the public that some logical explanation can be put together to explain--or even justify(?) a murder attempt.

Except for self defense and war on a battlefield,killing someone is not a justifiable act--therefore,the motive(or the explanation WHY Rushdie was attacked) is unnecessary in my eyes.

We don't learn anything that will prevent similar future incidents,so finding the motive is a worthless exercise,in my opinion.

There IS no excuse.

(CNN)The suspect who stabbed renowned author Salman Rushdie in western New York has been arraigned on charges of attempted murder in the second degree and assault in the second degree, the state police said.

Hadi Matar, 24, is accused of stabbing Rushdie -- whose controversial work has triggered death threats -- at a speaking engagement on Friday, authorities said. CNN has contacted a public defender assigned to Matar but did not receive an immediate response.
Matar was arraigned Saturday and remanded without bail to the Chautauqua County Jail, according to a State Police statement.

The venue where the attack occurred had rejected previous recommendations to toughen security measures, two sources told CNN.
Rushdie, 75, was stabbed at least twice on stage at the Chautauqua Institution before he was slated to give a lecture, New York state police said Friday. He was airlifted to a hospital in northwestern Pennsylvania and underwent surgery, a Pennsylvania police official

Later in the day, Rushdie was put on a ventilator and was unable to speak, his agent, Andrew Wylie, told The New York Times. He will likely lose an eye, Wylie said. "The nerves in his arm were severed; and his liver was stabbed and damaged. The news is not good."
A suspect was taken into custody shortly afterward, and authorities are working to determine the motive and the charges, state police said.

GRA:And you can't blame security.Rushdie was obviously a fatalist,who thought,"if I get attacked,so be it."He took the stage--as he probably has at other similar venues.But just as Whites can be in areas where blacks congregate--and do so safely--for a while,the odds eventually catch up with you.

MAYVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - "The Satanic Verses" author Salman Rushdie was taken off a ventilator and able to talk Saturday, a day after he was stabbed as he prepared to give a lecture in upstate New York.

Rushdie remained hospitalized with serious injuries, but fellow author Aatish Taseer tweeted in the evening that he was "off the ventilator and talking (and joking)." Rushdie’s agent, Andrew Wylie, confirmed that information without offering further details.

(GRA:What could he joke about?"My eye is gone,my liver is shot and I can't feel my arm--but you know what's worse?This damn hospital food.")

Earlier in the day, the man accused of attacking him Friday at the Chautauqua Institution, a nonprofit education and retreat center, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and assault charges in what a prosecutor called a "preplanned" crime.

An attorney for Hadi Matar entered the plea on his behalf during an arraignment in western New York. The suspect appeared in court wearing a black and white jumpsuit and a white face mask, with his hands cuffed in front of him.

A judge ordered him held without bail after District Attorney Jason Schmidt told her Matar, 24, took steps to purposely put himself in position to harm Rushdie, getting an advance pass to the event where the author was speaking and arriving a day early bearing a fake ID.

"This was a targeted, unprovoked, preplanned attack on Mr. Rushdie," Schmidt said.

GRA:Pretty amazing Rushdie is still among the living.
