The Courage and Love of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor
The story of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's struggle with the consequences of Alzheimer's disease is quite moving. (Her husband is afflicted with Alzheimer's and Justice O'Connor retired early from the Court to help arrange for his care.) Her recent (brief) plea for increased funding for research into this disease is also moving. See Lauren Neergaard (AP), "O'Connor makes personal plea for Alzheimer's aid," philly.com (May 14, 2008).
