Author Salman Rushdie has been taken off a ventilator and is able to talk (and joke) Saturday, a day after he was stabbed as he prepared to give a lecture in upstate New York.
Biden on Salman Rushdie: “Truth. Courage. Resilience. The ability to share ideas without fear. These are the building blocks of any free and open society. And today, we reaffirm our commitment to those deeply American values in solidarity with Rushdie”
In an interview conducted two weeks ago with Germany’s @sternde, Salman Rushdie said his life was now “relatively normal.” Rushdie talked in the interview with about the threats he sees to U.S. democracy. He also called himself an optimist. https://indianexpress.com/article/world/salman-rushdie-stabbing-new-york-live-updates-8087417/
