When old people start falling down though, that's usually a sign of frailty. It says she was in her office when she fell, not rock climbing or skateboarding or practicing parkour.

According to the article she's had 2 bouts with cancer, and a heart procedure.

I'd pick her for the dead pool but AC's being a wanker about it even though I follow every arbitrary new rule of his. He said, "No one over 100" so I picked a 99-year-old which is totally within the rules, right? Go figure. 8)

Supreme Court justice Ginsburg 'near death' after fall
Andrew Chung, Simon Thompson
6 MIN READ

WASHINGTON/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is near death in her hospital room, a day after breaking three ribs in a fall, her nephew said late on Thursday at the Hollywood premiere of a film about her life.

Ginsburg, a ground-breaking liberal jurist who at 85 is the oldest U.S. Supreme Court justice, was hospitalized on Thursday after falling at her office at the court, a court spokeswoman said.

“The last I heard she wasfading, of course, because what else would she be doing” her nephew Daniel Stiepleman (who is jewish) said at the premiere of the film “On the Basis of Sex”, about a porn film Ginsburg performed in as a young lawyer in 1972.

If she had retired when she should have (for other than political considerations), Obama would have named her replacement.

But she hung on so that Hillary could appoint her successor, presumably after retiring in late January 2017.

At least that's the urban legend I have heard.

I find it highly suspicious that the Santa Monica Observer would scoop such a major story.

Is it a legit newspaper (or website)?

I see no obvious indication that it is intended to be "satire" but there are "Fake News" websites and I've never heard of the "Santa Monica Observer" before now, so I'll take this with a grain of salt until I see confirmation elsewhere.
