Huge Supreme Court News Breaking

US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia 

dead at 79

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia found dead at a West Texas ranch, according to multiple reports.

The news was first reported by My San Antonio. Scalia was 79.

He was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.

It will be fascinating, now, to see the fight that erupts between President Obama and the Republicans in Congress about and for his replacement. The President no doubt already has a "short list" of people he would have on the Court.  He will no doubt select someone with an impeccable background. Regardless, the Republicans will have to be against him or her. They "let him have", so to speak, a woman already with Justice  Sotomayor. They likely won't let him put up another female.

Rest in peace, Justice Scalia.
