Reminiscences on the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I owe Ruth Ginsburg a great deal. My grades were pretty good when she hired me the first time, but, as she herself often admitted, two things got me over the hump in competition with all the other law students whose grades were pretty good: first, that I had an asterisk on my CV, to indicate that I had stayed home with my infant daughter Sarah for the first two years of her life while my wife continued working (RBG liked that arrangement a lot!), and, second, that instead of using one of my boring law school practice memos as a writing sample, I used a paper I had written on “Contract Law in Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle” (and she really liked that)… More here.

An amazing woman. Her death will trigger a potentially very dangerous moment for the US.
