Looking at the cross currents of historical and contemporary events

An interesting battle has erupted over Antonin Scalia's new book, Reading Law. Seems highly respected Judge Richard Posner, of the 7th US Court of Appeals, took exception to Supreme Court Justice Scalia's "textual originalism," noting that Scalia often equivocates in his rulings. Posner makes some very fine arguments in his review of the book, while Scalia fumes over these criticisms.
