I know I try to keep things light in my Sunday posts, but two years ago today, we lost Ruth Bader Ginsburg (nominated to the Supreme Court by home-state boy Bill Clinton), a brilliant jurist and a fierce advocate of equal rights for all. Between her death and the overturning by the Supreme Court of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in the Dodds decision (and subsequent moves to essentially outlaw abortion by several states and the unintended consequences resulting, as well as the signaling that other “settled law” might not be so settled), a significant portion of voting-age women have embraced their own advocacy anew.
I'm a retiree in his seventies. That may not be significant to many, since there is a bunch of us Baby Boomers around. However, in the year 2,000, when I received a diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma, I expected to be dead in three to five years.
