    I’m not sure about the comparison. The regent is specifically chosen to govern until the person came to age. Here, there is just an uncertain period of time before new people will be appointed. The lag has implications but not sure about the comparison.

    The media should start with an assessment of the quality of the opinions by the different justices. Justice Ginsburg would not be high on the list of the justices with low quality opinions. Justices Scalia and Kennedy would come way before Ginsburg.

    Why exactly is it that everyone is hounding Ginsburg but not Breyer? True, Ginsburg is older, but also true that American women live significantly longer than do American men, on average.

  4. Joe says:

    Breyer is about five years younger & Ginsburg has for a long while seemed more fragile. I don’t know how much longer women live when you take into consideration the subset of people who live past 70, their socioeconomic status, race and so forth. Thurgood Marshall is an example — he had an unhealthy lifestyle and lived a generation earlier and still lived into his 80s.

    I don’t think it’s an issue between gender and age.. It depends on its capacity to serve the people with transparency and fairness.
