Justice Is Blind... and Pissed Off

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia stood at the Waldorf Astoria podium pictured above and delivered a rambling, six-hour-long, invective-filled speech denouncing President Bush for appointing John Roberts to the position of Chief Justice instead of him. The podium, which is located in High Court justice's cluttered, Washington D.C.-area rec room, was hand-built by Scalia for this very purpose and the speech came to an end only after Scalia's wife had informed him that his dinner had been on the table for over an hour, was already stone-cold and that she was going upstairs to bed.
