The Death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

 Ruth Bader Ginsburg, died 18 September 2020

As if this annus horribilis could not get worse--plague, economic collapse, social unrest, climate disasters, Donald Trump, even murder hornets--it has tonight become much worse.

We mourn the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, legal giant, and feminist hero.

Her loss is incalculable.

"People ask me sometimes, when — when do you think it will it be enough? When will there be enough women on the court? And my answer is when there are nine."
