Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not only a trailblazing jurist, a brilliant legal thinker, a true American icon, a role model for women worldwide and a lookalike of Opera Chic's dearest aunt; our favorite Supreme Court Justice is also -- together with Justice Scalia -- a great opera lover. They also appeared together as supers at a memorable 1994 Ariadne. (And Big Tony, regardless of his many sins, gets at least some credit for being by all accounts a dear, sincere friend of RBG).

Justice Ruth (you can call her that only if she looks like your favorite aunt, mind you) just underwent surgery, and she has already warned those slacker dudes up at the Supreme Court that she'll show up for work on Feb 23 as planned. She is "progressing", the WSJ reports. And this is the perfect time to wish her a speedy recovery, send her a big opera-loving hug and a virtual teddy bear.
