Scalia's Gesture: The Final Foray

Chiudere il becco. Enough already about Justice Antonin Scalia's GestureGate. I say that to myself, acknowledging that I wrote about it twice already, here and here. I promise, this will be my final foray into the topic (I say with a wink to the NCAA). But I have to close the circle by pointing out the photo of Scalia's gesture, particularly given that the photographer who shot it reportedly lost his freelance job with Boston's Catholic newspaper for releasing it. While we're at it, I would also point you to Dahlia Lithwick's commentary in Slate, "How Do You Solve the Problem of Scalia?" And I would be remiss not to mention yesterday's New York Times editorial, "The Over-the-Top Justice," which suggests that his colleagues "might try to convince Justice Scalia of his duty to take greater care before articulating -- or gesticulating -- his sentiments in public." As for the final word on the obscenity vel non of the gesture, we leave that to the supreme authority, the cast of The Sopranos.
