NPR: Martin Ginsburg's Legacy: Love Of Justice (Ginsburg)

Ginsburg Following up on Wednesday's post, Remembering Marty Ginsburg (1932-2010):  NPR Weekend Edition, Martin Ginsburg's Legacy: Love Of Justice (Ginsburg), by Nina Totenberg (listen to the story here, with several clips of Marty):

The Ginsburg marriage was one of those marvels of life, a 56-year marathon of love and support.

Martin D. Ginsburg met Ruth Bader on a blind date at Cornell. She was 17; he a year older. As he would later put it, she was a "top student." He was a "top golfer." ...

In recent weeks, facing a losing battle with cancer, Marty Ginsburg wrote to his wife that setting aside parents and kids, "you are the only person I have loved in my life. ... I have admired and loved you almost since the day we first met at Cornell some 56 years ago."

Turning introspective about his own life, he told a friend, "I think that the most important thing I have done is to enable Ruth to do what she has done."
