    Oh no! Praying for his family and friends as well as the Court and our nation. RIP Antonin.

    I wonder if we'll have an Abe Fortas scenario where the Senate will not allow the President to make an appointment in his final months in office.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    Hope not! Obama should get to make another appointment.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    Wow! What were the odds of Scalia being the next SCJ to be replaced. (Note to Ted Cruz- in your dreams, lad).
    RIP, Cassini. To her tireless overseers- job well done.

    I can't help but wonder what he was doing there. Big Bend is pretty much the end of the earth.

    Interesting article about him & his service on the court. And speculation about filling the vacancy.

    "The U.S. Marshals Service in Washington confirmed Scalia's death at a private residence in the Big Bend area of West Texas. Spokeswoman Donna Sellers said Scalia had gone to his room the previous evening and was found dead Saturday morning after he did not appear for breakfast."
    "Scalia was part of a 5-4 conservative majority - with one of the five, Anthony Kennedy, sometimes voting with liberals on the court. Scalia's death leaves President Barack weighing when to nominate a successor, a decision that immediately sparked a political struggle drawing in Congress and the presidential candidates."

    RIP Justice Scalia.

    Big Bend area of Texas, the end of the earth? In a good way? I've been fortunate to spend time there. Absolutely positively gorgeous, imo, and a great time of year to be there.

    He was staying at * http://www.cibolocreekranch.com/. Go to gallery w pix of the three restored forts, now guest accommodations, and the 30,000 acres it's on.
    http://www.cibolocreekranch.com/gallery/. Newscasters called it a 'luxury resort.' Seems appropriate, imo. It has its own landing strip, 5,300 feet long & 60 feet wide, which can accommodate most private aircraft. Lots of amenities, but for me, the stunning location is spectacular. Not hyperbole.

    Further OT: If I don't die in my own bed, Cibolo Creek Ranch or other areas of the Big Bend would be on my top ten list of preferred locations. JM2cts.

    "A gray hearse was seen at the entrance to the Cibolo Creek Ranch, near Shafter, on Saturday accompanied by an SUV. The two-car caravan pulled out onto U.S. 67, which runs between wide stretches of dry, ochre winter fields. A man sat guard near a brown stone wall at the entrance to the ranch, the West Texas mountains rising in the background." bbm

    I have a close relative who feels the same as you. Personally, I just do NOT feel the same way. I prefer palm trees & ocean. The desert makes me feel depressed.
