I’ve just pressed pause while watching the 60 Minutes interview with Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court justice.
There’s not a lot he and I agree on. However, he is astoundingly smart, smug and charming.
You don’t see a lot of “The Supremes” on TV. I saw Scalia once before, probably on C-SPAN, debating Justice Breyer. I was in awe of their collective brilliance and collegial sparring.
How they could they both possess such amazing minds and opposing viewpoints?
On 60 Minutes, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was used to provide the same contrast. She and Scalia are close friends, though they seldom vote the same way.
Anyway, that’s not why I’m writing.
I watched the interview and all I could think of was, he will be played by Nathan Lane.
Note: I swear I didn’t look for the photos until after I’d written the entry.
