Ginsburg: I’m ‘Alive and Well’

She may have undergone surgery for pancreatic cancer last month, but Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she expects to be on the Supreme Court for years to come. In an interview with USA Today, she speaks out against Republican Sen. Jim Bunning, who predicted she’d be dead within nine months. Explaining why she attended President Obama’s speech to Congress last week, Ginsburg, 75, said: “First, I wanted people to see that the Supreme Court isn’t all male. I also wanted them to see I was alive and well, contrary to that senator who said I’d be dead within nine months.” Ginsburg returned to the court Feb. 23, when justices returned from a winter recess.
