1. Experienced discomfort?

Kind of an understatement. Broken ribs hurt like the dickens.

3. I've broken ankles and wrists but never ribs

Ruth is old enough to be my grandmother and I'd hope no one in America wishes ill on our grandmothers regardless of political ideology.

4. Agreed. I won't be sad if she leaves the court because of this, but I wouldn't wish this on anyone

her age. My mother is only 10 years younger than her and is still very active. But an injury while she's out hiking or bike riding could change everything.

7. I only had contusions of several ribs

after the car accident I was in last spring, and they hurt like hell for months.

8. What people who haven't had rib injuries can't appreciate

is the pain you experience just breathing - or worse when you laugh, cough, sneeze or anything else that works your torso.

17. Sleeping was excruciating

and I often found it was easier to sit sleeping up in a chair than trying to lay down on the bed.

And yes, laughing, sneezing, coughing, anything that required deep breathing was damned painful. I have asthma which is often made worse by allergens. I was lucky that the bulk of my recovery was over the hot & dry summer here or I would have been even more fucking miserable.

10. Perhaps justice scalias former supporters are.

Some of us are old enough to remember how the left reacted when he passed.

12. Those who celebrated the death of Justice Scalia are assholes.

If you choose to align yourself with them, that is your prerogative.

13. I guess you aren't a big believer in karma then either, are you, beyond crude attempts...

To assail others with it.

Hypocrite much?

14. Point to a post of mine wishing ill upon you.

Or, you could just slink quietly away.
