  1. When a Supreme Court Justice is giving a talk, it would be only appropriate to allow the audience to interject at any time, with any question, and be however snotty they want about it.

  2. “Only appropriate” for whom?
    What about the other 1116 people attending who came to hear a Supreme Court Justice, not your snot?

    If you want Scalia to hear your opinion, write him a letter. If you want anyone else to hear, write an op-ed.

  3. “Only appropriate” for the Justice, who is accustomed to being on the dispensing end of such behavior. In fact, questioners shouldn’t even have to stop at questions, but should be able to muse out loud for a while on distantly related topics.

    (You do realize I’m not serious, right?)
