Great News For The Nation!

January 11, 2019

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg requires no additional cancer treatment, but will miss oral arguments at the court next week to rest.

While odds for a recovery from the surgery she had are good, they go way up if the subsequent pathology report shows no cancer in the lymph nodes.  Today, the court released a written statement saying there is no additional evidence of cancer.

Ginsburg fans can rest a bit easier with the news. Doctors say that her odds of long-term survival are in the neighborhood of 80 percent.

    “Smart interesting women have long been a reason of national respect and even in some cases, lifting up to icon status.”

    On that subject, even as a self-anointed historian if youse never heard of Edna Gladney, youse wouldn’t be alone.

    Far, far beyond “smart-n-interesting,” and eminently deserving of icon status, the home grown Gladney (born in Milwaukee to an unwed 17 year-old in 1886) made a truly remarkable and lasting impact in, of all places, early 20th century Texas; a place-n-time one wouldn’t deem X-Chromosomal friendly.

    Smart interesting women have long been a reason of national respect and even in some cases, lifting up to icon status. Not only on the court but also in other areas of our national life. The first woman to have such a place at such a level (even internationally) was Alice Roosevelt Longworth. Eleanor Roosevelt is another. The career path and hurdles of RBG are why she is so revered.

    But it should be noted that men who made tremendous contributions to the court and law are also highly esteemed to his day—one even centuries removed. John Marshall is still a part of every investiture on the high court. Earl Warren is another that is viewed for his legal and administrative abilities on the court. It is the totality of ones life and the social aspect to their life, along with the times in which they lived, which elevates one up to a place which our nation deems appropriate.

    I’m glad she’s well!

    That said; “Ginsberg fans?” SCOTUS’s are now drawing fans?

    It’s been proven over and over and over and over again that, in LaLaLoopyLoonyLeftyLand, ideological certification alone determines one’s fanworthiness.

    Recall the slobbering excoriation the reliably Lefty former Justice Kennedy was forced to endure when he made the decision to retire?

    I do; I suspect he does as well.

    Anywho, know who was a late Justice Antonin Scalia fan? None other than the reliable Lefty Justice Elena Kagan

    While Scalia was Lefty’s secular Anti-Christ, he was not only close friends with Kagan, but lobbied for her appointment.

    In a perfect world, where consistency doesn’t surrender to hyper-partisan bias, Kagan would be deemed pure evil because she wasn’t ALL IN; in strict, undeviating compliance with The Lefty Way.

    Alas, perfection is not a human attribute, so this is just one more Inconvenient Truth that will elicit that blank 1000 yard/0.9144 km stare from the career Lefty, am I right?

    Cancer is a terrible disease, good for her!
