I somehow doubt that her most fervent wish will be honored.

RBG held out as long as she could.   She died on the last day of the year 5780 on the Hebrew calendar.

That's for sure, things are becoming more divisive every day, might take a total meltdown for her wish to <maybe> come true.

I'm glad I live in a country where the law defines how an office holder is replaced instead of their supposed dying wish.

"Today, our Nation mourns the loss of a titan of the law. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg served more than 27 years as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Statesónotably just the second woman to be appointed to the Court. She was a loving wife to her late husband, Martin, and a dedicated mother to her two children.

Renowned for her brilliant mind and her powerful dissents at the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg demonstrated that one can disagree without being disagreeable toward oneís colleagues or different points of view. Her opinions, including well-known decisions regarding the legal equality of women and the disabled, have inspired all Americans, and generations of great legal minds.

A fighter to the end, Justice Ginsburg battled cancer, and other very long odds, throughout her remarkable life. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ginsburg family and their loved ones during this difficult time. May her memory be a great and magnificent blessing to the world."
