Antonin Scalia, a stalwart of constitutionalism on a Supreme Court too often marked by a majority who believed they were the law of the land, is gone.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those who loved him most – his family and close friends.
But, truly, today Americans have reason to pray for their country in his absence.
It’s a dark day for the Constitution and the rule of law.
Darker still because his successor could be named by a president who is salivating at the opportunity to appoint Scalia’s polar opposite to the court.
There is only one thing that can stop him. The US Senate.
