John Lewis, who we also lost to this unforgiving year, liked to tell young people to get into Good Trouble. RBG did something even more rare. She went Good Viral. “A law student, Shana Knizhnik, anointed her the Notorious R.B.G., a play on the name of the Notorious B.I.G., a famous rapper who was Brooklyn-born, like the justice. Soon the name, and Justice Ginsburg’s image — her expression serene yet severe, a frilly lace collar adorning her black judicial robe, her eyes framed by oversize glasses and a gold crown perched at a rakish angle on her head — became an internet sensation.” NYT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court’s Feminist Icon, Is Dead at 87.

+ “May her memory be a revolution.” Internet tributes pouring in.
