RIP, whether you agreed with her arguments or not, she was a trailblazer and a titan. Gotta feel for her family that her death is immediately followed by intense politicisation, but I would bet that they knew it was going to happen.
Colossally significant timing though. Two months out from one of the most divisive presidential elections in quite some time. Lots to play for. Justice Breyer is also 82 years old, and has been in the role for over 25 years - I would imagine his time would come to an end within the next 5 years (not to wish any ill upon the man).
The implications of this are truly massive. Just when you think nothing else could be sprinkled in to make this election more of a flashpoint, this happens.
