    I have already had to edit out some political opinion. If you can't keep this thread non-political, we will have to close it to comments.

    Sad day. If there is a heaven, it just got a big mind and a great character.

    She was an amazing person. If you aren't familiar with her life and career, I recommend the documentary RBG, which I think is streaming on Hulu and Netflix. Or the drama based on her life, "On the Basis of Sex."

    What a legal mind and powerhouse of a woman in such a tiny body. RIP, RBG. :(

    A true legal pioneer - we will definitely miss her, and her wonderful sense of humor.

    A true giant of the court, despite her diminutive size. Will be remembered as being in the same league as Thurgood Marshall and Earl Warren.

    She helped pave the way for many others and fought off cancer three times before it won. That is some I can respect if I agree with her or not.

    I just heard how her and justice Scalia would spend time together with each other’s families and we’re good friends even though they disagreed on politics. A lesson everyone should learn.
    RIP.

    She was definitely an inspirational human. She’s been fighting both legally and especially physically for a very long time.

    RIP

    One of the people I most respect. Also one of the sharpest person in this country. I am so saddened by this event.
