    My hopes are blighted, my heart is broken, my life a burden, everything around me is sad and mournful; earth has become distasteful to me, and human voices distract me. It is mercy to let me die, for if I live I shall lose my reason and become mad.

    Pretty sad. Falls can be devastating for an older person, i.e. breaking a bone. I hope she's OK.

    My grandma fell and broke her hip at 85, and she recovered fine, quickly actually, it was pretty amazing, we were all really worried because that sort of injury can be the beginning of the end at that age.

    Hoping she makes a good recovery.

    It's amazing how they do joint replacements and such.

    I hope she hangs in there. Trump getting 3 justices in 2 years would be a nightmare that will last the rest of our lives

    Great news! She's tough.

    Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg ‘Up and Working’ After Fall

    ...As the oldest justice, Ginsburg is closely watched for any signs of deteriorating health. She has bounced back from previous medical issues and has fallen twice before at her home, in 2012 and 2013, leading to rib injuries. She was treated in 1999 for colon cancer and again in 2009 for pancreatic cancer, but did not miss any argument sessions either time.

    In 2014, doctors placed a stent in her right coronary artery to improve blood flow after she reported discomfort following routine exercise. She was released from a hospital the next day...

    Why? It turns out Kavanaugh snowflaked on the death penalty issue already. I don't even know if he's an actual deplorable, or a snowflake pretending to be a deplorable.

    I don't think anyone's really going to give a shit. The supreme court's made a bunch of terrible decisions in the years' past, and this is before the Trump nominations, i.e. how only Clarence Thomas stood up for my 2nd amendment rights.

    And you're all surprised when the conservatives try to roll back civil rights... don't be.
