She literally a Wonder Woman.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday night made her first public appearance since undergoing cancer surgery in December, attending a celebration of her life presented in song.
The 85-year-old justice attended a production of “Notorious RBG in Song” at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington. The program about Ginsburg’s life in the law was created and performed by Ginsburg’s daughter-in-law, the soprano Patrice Michaels, and presented for high school students by the National Constitution Center.
Ginsburg did not speak, and many in the crowd did not know she was there. She sat in the back, and most saw her only as they left the performance. Michaels did not announce her presence.
Ginsburg had not made public appearances since undergoing a pulmonary lobectomy Dec. 21 after doctors discovered cancerous nodules in her left lung. Recovery from such surgery typically takes six to eight weeks, according to medical specialists, and Ginsburg, for the first time since joining the court in 1993, missed a round of oral arguments in January.
This is very good news that Ginsburg is once again up and about, and how much does it rock that he first public appearance is at a show that celebrates her life?
There were a number of Right Wing outlets suggesting that she was either much sicker than had been reported or that she was in fact dead.
Clearly, that is not the case.
It was also reported today that RBG is back to doing light exercises and even walking about a mile a day to further her recovery.
Another conspiracy theory was that if Ginsburg did not show up to tonight’s State of the Union that it was a sure sign she was in bad shape.
However, Ginsburg has skipped all of Trump’s previous speeches so that theory holds no water as well.
The Brits might say “Long live the Queen,” but my catchphrase is “Long Live the Notorious RBG!”
