The day before Justice Ginsburg passed away

Given the magnitude of the change to the U.S. Supreme Court at hand, little notice seems to have been given to what happened right before Justice Ginsburg's passing.

SCOTUSblog on 9/18: “Two Supreme Court justices made public appearances on Thursday — if only virtually — and a third received a lifetime achievement award as the legal academy celebrated Constitution Day. The National Constitution Center awarded its 32nd annual Liberty Medal to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and, in lieu of an in-person ceremony, the center invited Ginsburg’s favorite opera singers and friends to pay tribute to her lifelong work in the law.”

When one is advanced in years, especially beyond 70 or 80, there's nothing like a “lifetime achievement award” to give a person the sense that they have completed their life's work. Things like that do have a way of loosening one's hold on life at that age. She passed away the next day.
