This Viking rune-stone was found in the churchyard of St Paul’s Cathedral, London in 1852. The decoration on the face is in the Ringerike style which is dated to c. A.D. 980 - 1070. The runes are cut in two lines on the stone. The text reads: “Ginna and Toki had this stone set up.” Vestiges of paint were found on the stone.

Theon found himself wondering if he should say a prayer. Will the old gods hear me if I do? They were not his gods, had never been his gods. He was ironborn, a son of Pyke, his god was the Drowned God of the islands… but Winterfell was long leagues from the sea. It had been a lifetime since any god had heard him. He did not know who he was, or what he was, why he was still alive, why he had ever been born.

Amy Davidson on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s retirement dissent:

"Do Democrats want to make sure that a President of their party is in office when Ginsburg leaves the Court? Then win the next election; battle it out, rather than fretting and sighing about how an older woman doesn’t know when it’s time to go.”
