I’LL CHOOSE MY OWN "ICONS," “national treasures,” heroes and heroines, etc., and decide for myself who has or hasn’t been a “great American,” and who has or hasn’t made great “contributions” to our country — the list could go on and own. We live in times when, as never before, people “call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isa. 5:20); times when people demonize those who’ve done and do good, and try to deify those who’ve done and do evil. This is exactly what we are dealing with in the case of the recently deceased Ruth G. Ginsburg.
