Justice Scalia is gone

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

Of course there have been about 20 million words already written about this, but even so: I met him 10 years ago or so.  I bought a tie and a tie-tack from the National Wild Turkey Federation just for the occasion, because that was something he and I shared in common.  He was a hugely entertaining speaker–I suppose partly because he simply said true things, without a lot of pretense or nonsensical rationalizations that are characteristic of “sophisticated” people.  And he was a great friend of the Second Amendment, and limited government generally.  I imagine he would have voted in my favor in my current lawsuit, but I will never find out.

I understand he leaves behind 28 grandchildren.  I suppose it is too much to hope that they will turn out like he did, but I’ll hope it anyway.

RIP
