I just finished reading this and must say, Andy does it again. To survive the insanity that is Washington DC and how it affects our daily lives we MUST have a strong sense of humor. Somehow I am very sure the Boy Scouts will be just fine without Scalia and they most definitely will be stronger for finally accepting all people without concern about their race, religion or sexual orientation. Wonder how Scalia would handle an openly gay member of SCOTUS? I know, not well. LOL!

Thanks for the dose of AB. Apparently he failed to read that the changes didn't apply to scoutmasters yet, just to scouts. A new petition for that step has been posted on

is there any doubt that he can't separate his religious beliefs from his duty to interpret the constitution.
