OPEC is in a Pickle, Thanks to U.S. Oil Producers

Jewish comedian Woody Allen liked to quote the Yiddish proverb, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.” Jewish Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg should have listened to Woody. In July she gave a not so oblique hint that she would stay on the Supreme Court as long as she could in order to keep President Trump from replacing her with a conservative: ““I’m now 85. My senior colleague Justice John Paul Stevens … he stepped down when he was 90. So I think I have about five more years.”

God may have other plans. On Wednesday evening, Ginsburg was working in her office when she fell and broke three ribs. At this writing, she remains in the hospital for treatment and recovery. In the past, she has had a series of health problems: she fell and broke two ribs in 2012. She has had two previous bouts with cancer and had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery in 2014.
