Scalia's Legacy

My latest @ Opportunity Lives: Scalia's Legacy

Here's a quote Fox News's Supreme Court Correspondent, Shannon Bream, kindly gave me

"Covering Justice Scalia was always an adventure because, although you never knew what he would say, you knew it would be colorful.  He was a strong personality, independent thinker and incredibly gregarious.  I’ll never forget him hijacking the carol-singing at the Court’s holiday parties.  He belted out songs with gusto, while assigning other carolers their parts and conducting the whole affair with obvious delight.  He was a character on and off the bench, never minced words and regularly provoked the entire courtroom into howls of laughter.  He was also known for his deep friendship with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, despite their ideological differences.  The affection between the two was unmistakable, and the loss for her must be especially painful."
