RBG is gone
« on: September 18, 2020, 08:50:44 pm »
CNN?s Jake Tapper just tweeted out the news that Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg has passed away. Ginsburg had been ill with cancer for some time. She was hospitalized in July and had not been heard from or seen.

Tapper?s news: ?Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died this evening surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. She was 87 years old.?

She is not gone Wally she has passed away.  Her legacy will go on for ever.

This could/will get tacky real fast.

BTW: Was it Covid? Not a joke. Maybe sarcasm.

We can admire the person and accomplishments without agreeing with the decisions on the bench.  I felt the same about Lewis.  Probably would not have agreed with either on much, but admired what I knew of their lives.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.
