When it’s Cinco de Mayo during the coronapocalypse and you hear something about Ruth Bader Ginsburg being hospitalized, you put down your taco and immediately get to work.
According a spokeswoman for the Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, who has survived four bouts of cancer, underwent nonsurgical treatment for acute cholecystitis, a benign gallbladder condition. Here’s a relevent excerpt from the high court’s statement on her condition:
The Justice is resting comfortably and plans to participate in the oral argument teleconference tomorrow morning remotely from the hospital. She expects to stay in the hospital for a day or two.
Of course Justice Ginsburg will be working from the hospital. They don’t call her Notorious for nothing. We wish her well with her recovery.
