Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was greeting Louisiana State University law students after a speech a few years ago when one enraptured student, Todd Benson, came up to him and said, "I've named my pet fish after you."
"Oh, you've named him 'Nino,' " the justice said, referring to his nickname. "No," Benson said, "I've named him 'Justice Scalia.' "
A professor who overheard the conversation later asked Benson whether he had other fish named after justices. "No," Benson replied, "Justice Scalia ate all the others."
It is a pretty good article, especially if you study the decisions the Court hands down on a daily basis like I do. The article wonders whether his decisions are aimed at influencing younger generations of lawyers as well as his colleagues on the bench, something I had never thought of before.
