RIP Justice Scalia

Sad news out of Washington (is there anything but that lately?): Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has passed away.  His was a staunch, consistent, and eloquent conservative voice.  Even for those opposed to his positions, his candor, consistency, and communication had to be admired.  

He was one of the last Justices that viewed the Constitution as a "dead" document - unlike the living document so many consider the Constitution to be, Scalia unwavering viewed it via the context offered by the original framers.  Given the current state of jurisprudence, others knit from the same material pretty much aren't out there.  Hence, the loss of Scalia is a huge blow.

It will now degenerate into a food fight as to how and when he'll be replaced.  Regardless of what ultimately happens, he'll never truly be replaced, and our country is worse because of it.

Rest in peace.
