Speaking of the U.S. Supreme Court, the LA Times this morning printed an article about what it perceives as Justice Antonin Scalia’s ascendance. Blawgletter finds the subject interesting — not least because His Honor opposes constitutional limits on punitive damages and thus dissented in today’s Weyerhaueser decision (post with opinion link here) — but also because of his low impulse control. For example: "I’m a textualist. I’m an originalist. I’m not a nut," he told students at Claremont McKenna College this month.
