    Many wonderful things have happened on this day. For example, twenty five years ago, my birthday present from the universe was that Ruth Bader Ginsberg was sworn in as a Supreme Court Associate Justice.

    May such blessings continue to accrue and abound, and many happy returns.

    Hope the voyage is a long one.
