    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia dead at 79

    By Eileen AJ Connelly

    Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.

    Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa. MySanAntonio.com said he died of apparent natural causes.

    Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people, the website of the San Antonio Express News said. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body.

    The U.S. Marshal Service, the Presidio County sheriff and the FBI were involved in the investigation, according to the report.

    Officials with the law enforcement agencies declined to comment.

    A woman who answered the phone at the ranch told the Post she was unaware of the justice’s death, and no manager was available to discuss the matter.

    A federal official who asked not to be named told the San Antonio Express News paper there was no evidence of foul play and it appeared that Scalia died of natural causes.

    Scalia was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.

    Condolences to his family, but I thought he was a total dick as a human being.

    Yeah, no shit. That's about what my Facebook feed says too. Someone said, "Ding dong, the witch is dead".

    I'm pretty bothered by my first thoughts when I heard this man died. But, condolences to his family. Someone must have loved him - somehow.

    Strangely, I respected a lot of his decisions, but I'll never forgive him for putting W. on the throne.

    I don't think I ever agreed with him but his dissents were a treat, the man was brilliant and had a bitchy sense of humour and was a great writer. Even if I didn't agree with his views, the world lost a brilliant legal mind today.

    He has 9 kids who will miss him. My first thought was hoping that Obama hurries to get a new appointment through before the end of his term - just in case...

    Obama could nominate Mother Teresa, and the Republicans would likely stonewall it until after the next election.

    I read he was on a quail hunting trip and immediately wondered if Cheney was around, but then read he died in his sleep.

    Sadly, I think you're right. Though they'd totally vet mother Teresa, she was about as bad as the repubs when it comes to women's rights.

    Hated him. Hated most of his decisions. Hated his sarcastic, insulting demeanor.

    Boy, are a log of conservative Republicans pooping their drawers right now. I wonder if Obama already has someone in mind to replace him. It would be different than replacing Ginsburg, though, where he would get a freebie from most of Congress.

    That doesn't mean Cheney wasn't around. ��
