Consider the irony that the first female Jewish Supreme Court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, died on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, recognized as a day for new beginnings.

Ginsburg also became the first American in 2020 that Democrats have yet to blame their death on the cops, Trump, or COVID-19. In perhaps another first, Ginsburg will be voting by mail this election.
