Remembering Antonin Scalia

Just. Don't.

A good man just died. Give him the moment his legacy, no matter what you feel, deserves.

Just. Don't.

It can sound like a mere political opinion expressing itself. Maybe it is. But just don't make it that.

This isn't a victory for liberals who want a better justice (to their opinion) on the United States Supreme Court. It isn't a time for conservatives (to their opinion) to make a plea for a deserving replacement. This isn't a time for making something, someone, a political football.

This is a time to mourn. This is a time to remember someone who had a chance to affect American history and did what he could for it. His opinions aren't in the lawyer's books for nothing. They're there because they're worth hearing.

Don't make this about politics. Remember his family. Remember his words. Remember his person.

Remember Antonin Scalia. Just. Do. That.
