The drama occurred Saturday morning, when a 79-year-old man named Antonin Scalia died of a heart attack in his sleep. In Texas. So what you say? The man wasn't just any man. He was a member of the US Supreme Court. One of nine non-elected, lifetime appointees on a mission to maintain the Greatest Democracy the World Has Ever Seen™.
