On Columbus Day, Praise for American Patriotism by an Italian-American Jurist
A beautiful excerpt from a 1986 speech by the late Justice Antonin Scalia on being proud of his Italian heritage "and why that pride makes us no less than 100 percent Americans." I know my great-grandfather--an Italian immigrant and true American patriot--would have wholeheartedly agreed.
From Ed Whelan’s new book, "Scalia Speaks: Reflections on Law, Faith, and Life Well Lived" (which I am currently enjoying).
Happy Columbus Day everyone!
