The AP reports:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had surgery today for pancreatic cancer, raising the possibility that one of the ideologically divided court’s leading liberals — and its only woman — might have to curtail her work or even step down before she had planned.
I wish Justice Ginsburg well. I am not a fan of Justice Ginsburg’s jurisprudence, but I respect her — as I do all the justices save Anthony Kennedy. (And of course, even if it were he who were suffering this malady, I would wish him well too.) Plus, she’s an opera fan and a personal friend of my hero Nino Scalia — so I figure that she must be a good person.
