Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is Dead at 87

 

The New York Times reports that Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court and a pioneering advocate for women’s rights, who in her ninth decade became a much younger generation’s unlikely cultural icon, died on Friday. She was 87. The cause was complications of metastatic pancreas cancer, the Supreme Court said.

To Ruth I would only say thank you for all you did for the world -- and for sticking around as long as you did. We knew this day would come yet somehow it does nothing to soften the blow. 

Never a fun lesson to remember things can always get much worse.
