Scalia Hits Amsterdam

Professor Mark Tushnet blogs on Balkinization and makes a comparrison between former Supreme Court Judge Felix Frankfurter and current Iron Fist Antonin Scalia. Tushnet notes that over the years Scalia's legacy may prove to be not that strong, as Frankfurter's.

I rather hope that Bob Woodward takes a break from sniffing at the White House and going for the slowest news analysis award at Larry King's show. A break to write a follow up to the highly enjoyable The Brethren. On Chief Justice Burger's apprentice John Rehnquist and his Merry Men, with Scalia as the Sherriff of Nothingham. But wait, that's what Tushnet's new book, A Court Divided: The Rehnquist Court and the Future of Constitutional Law, will be about. I hope.

In the meantime I'll drop by at a rare Scalia schow, September Ninth, here in Amsterdam. The moderator will be the former head of Dutch intelligence, who has an even more impressive round head than Scalia, presumably full of brains.
