    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Champion Of Gender Equality, Dies At 87

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural and feminist icon, died Friday. The Supreme Court announced her death, saying the cause was complications from metastatic cancer of the pancreas.

    The court, in a statement, said Ginsburg died at her home in Washington surrounded by family. She was 87.

    "Our nation has lost a justice of historic stature," Chief Justice John Roberts said. "We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her, a tireless and resolute champion of justice."

    My wife is sick to her stomach right now with the passing of RGB. She may be having well more than just two glasses of wine tonight. :(

    The nation will miss her, but with her health issues, she's in a better place.
