Remembering Antonin Scalia


You have probably heard by now that Justice Antonin Scalia has died. This is a terrible loss to his family, as well as being a tremendous loss to the body politic. We are unlikely to see another like him in our life times. Below, I simply link to the better reflections on his life that have come to my attention:
