“Hearest thou what these say?”

A few weeks ago, on our last afternoon in Ithaca, my son was trying to talk to my niece’s daughter, who was a few days away from turning 10. Wearing a Ruth Bader Ginsburg shirt that said ‘Dissent’ on it, she had put a drawing up on their dining room wall that said something about human rights, which he wanted to know more about. But she wanted to be left alone.

“What’s your favorite human right?” he asked, but he got no answer. When he repeated the question, she snapped at him, “You have the right to remain silent.” These kids today!
