Please, please, please, Justice Kennedy! You’re only 81. Can’t you wait just three more years before retiring? RBG is 85 and hanging in there. If she can, so can you. We need you. American women need you to make sure their privacy and choice is protected. The court needs your thoughtful moderate position to keep it balanced.
For what it’s worth, your resignation is the most depressing news I’ve heard since November 8, 2016, when Donald Trump was elected, and since then it’s all been depressing. The future of the Supreme Court was the single most important reason to vote against him. And now your action is ensuring his influence will be felt for decades to come.
Mr. Justice, I had actual nightmares last night about the implications of your resignation. Please reconsider.
