Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate Supreme Court Justice, Don't Wanna Retire At Age 80

Appointed to the US Supreme Court by Bill Clinton in 1993, after being recommended by Attorney General Janet Reno, who also recommended the assault on the Branch Davidians near Waco, TX, the octogenerian jurist has vowed to maintain her place on the highest court in the land, according to this article by Reuters.  Ginsburg, one-time general counsel of the ACLU and a proponent of women's rights, was criticized during her confirmation hearings for never having hired an African-American among the 57 clerks, interns and secretaries that worked for her during her 13 years on the federal bench at the US Court of Appeals in Washington, DC.
