Scalia to reporters
Here is Scalia's gesture to a reporter asking him about whether he could be impartial about church/state issues as he was leaving church. He denied making such a gesture and then Peter Smith, a freelance photographer, released this picture. Smith was promptly fired!
In other High Court news, there is a move to put cameras in the Supreme Court and all federal courts around the country, which will produce similar gestures from Justices. In fact, two such bills are currently pending and are garnering support. I'm for it because it creates accountability for judges (and prosecutors). Thoughts?
