She commented on her formidable challenge in getting her "case before the Supreme Court. Will they deign to hear us," she asked? Will we advance the sunlight or only increase the shadows on our constitutional rights?"
"We can only strive to present our issues in the best possible way and 'fight like hell' " for justice. There's "no predicting results, but in prison, HOPE is the only currency."
On October 8, Lynne added another year. She's 73. She's "counting down (her) 74th year," she said. Her husband and lifelong human rights partner Ralph is 79.
Often her final comment is vintage Lynne. She urges everyone to join the struggle for justice. "Organize - Agitate, Agitate, Agitate!"

Lynne's health compounds her problems. On January 23, Press TV headlined "Jailed US lawyer of blind Egyptian cleric denied cancer treatment," saying:
It reemerged. It "spread to her lungs and upper back."
"She "require(s) immediate expert treatment." She requested transfer to a New York hospital. She's been successfully treated there before. She was denied.
She's confined to prison-style treatment. It's mediocre at best. Authorities want her silenced. They don't care if she lives or dies.
Incarceration harms human health. Prison conditions aren't compatible with healthy living. Serious illnesses aren't adequately diagnosed or treated. Some are entirely ignored.
