Ave, Malcolm and Mike!

Nature abhors a vacuum, and with the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, a vacuum has been created, donc il est grand temps de combler le vide. Scalia's passing was met with mournful respect by some and raucous joy by others (mainly because of his unevolved positions on gay marriage, however much of an enlightened defender of the Constitution he might have been), but two postmortem (literally postmortem) analyses from my regular blog circuit caught my eye: one from my e-friend Malcolm Pollack and one from my buddy Mike of Naked Villainy. Together, these posts make the issues surrounding the current vacuum-filling turmoil much clearer for a layman like me.
