Notorious R.B.G. . . .does not cook

Great to see the tumblr generation appreciating the pen-and-paper generation. In this case, a pen-and-yellow legal pad woman, Notorious R.B.G. See notoriousrbg.tumblr.com.

Before she became notorious, R.B.G. was married to Martin Ginsburg who was, by all accounts, a near genius tax lawyer, a charmer and a great cook. When he died, the justices’ spouses, led by Marta-Ann Alito, paid him tribute by publishing a book of his recipes, Chef Supreme Martin Ginsburg. Among the reminiscences is daughter Jane’s line when she was young: “Mommy does the thinking and Daddy does the cooking.” Mommy, that is, Notorious R.B.G.
