In many cases, a close friend may offer a surprising testimony–surprising to those who have spun off into the political fringes of the day.
Lots of people had critical, if not nasty, things to say about Justice Scalia. A good amount of inappropriate crudity, and I read a lot on Facebook, “Those mean liberals!”
The first reactions I read online had to do with political obstruction of a successor. And the conspiracy theories started floating to the top like dead, bloated fish in a pond. It all seems rather crass and opportunistic to me.
I wonder if the conspiracy meme for this century will find the pillow and the isolated retreat house near the Tex-Mex border replacing the grassy knoll and the book depository from the other side of the state.
Meanwhile, may Antonin Scalia find eternal rest and peace.
