More on the remarkable Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

In these pages, I have written about Justice Ginsburg and the enormous respect I have for this tiny intellectual powerhouse. See Justice Ginsburg is not too old to continue to serve and anyone who says differently is a mean son-of-bitch and a misogynistJustice Ginsburg, and Justice Ginsburg shows us (again) that law is not politics.

With a tip of the hat to Howard Bashman and How Appealing, I call your attention to a long interview of Justice Ginsburg by Jeffrey Rosen, entitled Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is an American Hero She’s staying put—and has some choice words for young feminists. An interview, New Republic (September 28, 2014). I urge you to read it.

There is a lot of interesting information contained in the interview including Justice Ginsburg’s speculation that if Justice Sandra Day O’Connor had not retired Citizens United, Shelby County, and probably Hobby Lobby would have turned out differently. Her respect for Chief Justice Rehnquist also makes for a fascinating insight into the inner workings of the Court. Rosen has done us all a service with this probing interview.
