She would have done well to retire ten years ago when she had a chance to enjoy herself guilt-free.
Workaholics don't retire, thats all they know work work work. But you are right, she should have retired 1.5 yrs prior to Obama leaving his second term then her last wish would have come true, "that her replacement to the highest court in the land be picked by a president other than Donald Trump."

Say what the Senate would have held that up to. She would have had to retire in 2014.

Alex Trebek was a "legend"...? He was an amiable enough guy, but seeing him hawking life insurance to old people for years on TV made him seem quite a bit less than Legendary to me...

RIP Squiggy. He wasn't a legend, but maybe at least a scurrilous rumor.

Adios Chuck Yeager, once the fastest man alive. Not the fastest man dead, by a long sight. The world is ever so slightly better with you gone.

Oh, you know who did some additional hate mongering and I guess got hurt feelings being called on it.
