  1. I wonder, if he is in heaven,if he hasn’t been spending his time influencing the election from that “foreign land”

  2. A few years ago, I bought a copy of Scalia Dissents, a collection of Justice
    Scalia’s dissenting Supreme Court decisions. In lesser hands, such a book would be
    likely useful only as a cure for insomnia, but Scalia’s were no such lesser hands. For
    example, on religious freedom, he wrote: “I find it a sufficient embarrassment that
    our Establishment Clause jurisprudence regarding holiday displays has come to
    require scrutiny more commonly associated with interior decorators than with
    the judiciary.”

    And here is his critique of the fashion for legislating from the bench: “Evidently,
    the governing standard is to be what might be called the unfettered wisdom of a
    majority of this Court, revealed to an obedient people on a case-by-case basis.”

    God bless him. His was a magnificent Supreme Court appointment, and he is
    sorely missed.
