I was saddened to hear of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death.
She died at a bad time for editorial cartoons, late on Friday when the cartoonists are off and the newspapers had been put to bed for the weekend. And she died at an even worse time for the nation as her pivotal, conservative successor is likely to be confirmed by a hypocritical, lame duck, Republican-controlled Senate.
My cartoon is above.
Here are the first Ruth Bader Ginsburg obituary cartoons to come in.
