Did Justice Scalia Believe in Dinosaurs? An Investigation – Medium
“I opened with one Feynman quotation; indulge me, because I’d like to end with another. The ‘first principle,’ Feynman once said, is that ‘you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool.’ For leftists like me and liberals like Bazelon, it is all too easy to fool ourselves into believing that conservatives are not just politically mistaken, but actually rubes. Such beliefs are tantalizing because they suggest that we are something better than merely correct—no, we are more sophisticated.”

New York Times Bazelon Scalia Smear | National Review
“It would be a good thing to have a ‘paper of record’ (or, better yet, multiple papers) that were deserving of trust. But the New York Times has long since abandoned any claim to be trusted. To be clear, it has various reporters whom I like and respect. But it has a Stalinist culture of ideological conformity that prevents it from acknowledging and correcting errors that suit its ideological predilections.”

Transcript: Rev. Paul Scalia's eulogy for his father, Justice Antonin Scalia
Beautiful homily, beginning with this example of paraprosdokian (which I learned from P. Edmund:

"We are gathered here because of one man. A man known personally to many of us, known only by reputation to even more. A man loved by many, scorned by others. A man known for great controversy, and for great compassion. That man, of course, is Jesus of Nazareth."

I also liked this quote from a letter from Justice Scalia to a Presbyterian minister about eulogies:

"Even when the deceased was an admirable person, indeed especially when the deceased was an admirable person, praise for his virtues can cause us to forget that we are praying for and giving thanks for God's inexplicable mercy to a sinner."

Looking Back: Antonin Scalia
Antonin Scalia, who died this month, after nearly three decades on the Supreme Court, devoted his professional life to making the United States a less fair, less tolerant, and less admirable democracy. Fortunately, he mostly failed. Belligerent with his colleagues, dismissive of his critics, nostalgic for a world where outsiders knew their place and stayed there, Scalia represents a perfect model for everything that President Obama should avoid in a successor.
