Letters to the Editor

Letter: Quite a lady

To the Editor:

The papers and other media have been full of tributes to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I so admired this lady that I wanted something local.

So many things could be said, but I will pick only a few: First in her class at law school – but still unable to find work, in no small part because she was a woman. But she went on to argue six cases there [the Supreme Court], winning five. She was only the second woman to win a seat. Yes, she was in the liberal minority, but how she could challenge the majority to fully consider its decisions. Liberal though she was, she had a real friendship with Anton Scalia, a staunch conservative.

Finally, here is quote from Chief Justice John Roberts: “Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature. We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her – a tireless and resolute champion of justice.” (Chicago Tribune, 9/19/20)
