Bless Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Poor Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg has been admitted to the hospitalized today after a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. She's been a Supreme Court Justice for 15 years, and as an appointee by then President Bill Clinton, was only the second female Justice and the first Jewish one. She has come down on the side of Labor, and equal rights for women and men repeatedly throughout her career. Forbes listed has her as one of the top 100 most powerful women in the world for the last two years.

Blessings to Justice Ginsburg and here's hoping she makes a smooth recovery.

Sad to speculate, but if she is unable to continue in the highest court, here's hoping President Obama will appoint someone whose political stance is equal to hers. And naturally, I also hope such an appointee would be a woman.
