Scalia out of the no-comment closet

We’re still waiting for the Virginia Lawyers Weekly interview with Antonin Scalia, but if you have been wondering why the notably media-wary justice has suddenly embraced electronic attention (other than book promotion, of course), there’s this bite from a new Brian Lamb interview with Scalia on C-SPAN:

“I’ve sort of come to the conclusion that the old common law tradition of judges not making public spectacles of themselves and hiding in the grass has just broken down. It’s no use, I’m going to be a public spectacle whether I come out of the closet or not, beyond T-shirts and bobblehead dolls and what-not.”
