I was not a fan of Justice Antonin Scalia’s politics. However, I was appalled at the reaction of the politicians on both sides of the aisle [“Showdown looms on successor,” News, Feb. 15].
Instead of showing some respect for the man, they put his death on the back burner and argued over the politics of his replacement. A respectful statement about their sorrow for his untimely passing and support for his family would have been appropriate and sufficient. Instead, they turned his death into a political sideshow. Just goes to show the blackness in all of their hearts.
