“Is Ruth Bader Ginsburg too old to be a Supreme Court justice?” See that essay yesterday at The Los Angeles Times.
Read the essay. Inform yourself about the many medical and physical problems that Justice Ginsburg has courageously overcome and marvel at her toughness. Remember her long and distinguished service and, most importantly, look back in awe at her passionate and persuasive engagement as a Justice this term. Now, consider this little known fact:
Even though she is 80, Justice Ginsburg is real human being.
Real human beings should be treated with respect. Suggestions that Justice Ginsburg must retire, because the Republicans may get her seat, treat her like an object. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. Tossing away women when they are perceived to be no longer useful has a long history. But it still makes me puke.
