Scalia's Gesture

There was a bit of manufactured controversy recently over the fact that Justice Scalia possibly said a Sicilian vulgarity ("vaffanculo") after mass when a reporter "asked the justice how he responds to critics who might question his impartiality as a judge given his public worship."

If a reporter ever collared Justice Ginsburg or Breyer outside of a synagogue and asked, "What do you say to people who question whether a Jew can be an impartial Supreme Court Justice," I hope they'd say the same.
