Antonin Scalia

A Great Jurist, Great Writer, Great Speaker, Great American

Larry Thornberry, The American Spectator

Antonin Gregory “Nino” Scalia, born in Trenton, New Jersey and raised in the Elmhurst section of Queens, was one lawyer who didn’t have clarity, coherence, humor, and humanity beaten out of him in three years of law school, an institution that seems to be a sworn enemy of all four.
