"What did I learn at Harvard Law School or at my practice in Ohio or in the federal government that qualifies me to determine whether there ought to be — and therefore is — a right to abortion or to homosexual sodomy or a right to suicide?" Scalia said. "I don't know any more about that than Joe Six-pack."

--Antonin Scalia, Union League Club, 9/16/2008

PS: The idea that the U of C law school "has lost its edge and gone liberal" is bonkers. "Lost its edge and gone cuckoo for infusing law with economic theory," we can talk.
