Talking with Antonin Scalia

On the eve of a new Supreme Court term, New York magazine has a fascinating interview with Justice Antonin Scalia.

A brief excerpt:

"One of the things that upsets me about modern society is the coarseness of manners. You can't go to a movie--or watch a television show for that matter--without hearing the constant use of the F-word--including, you know, ladies using it. People that I know don't talk like that! But if you portray it a lot, the society's going to become that way. It's very sad."

"And you can't have a movie or a television show without a nude sex scene, very often having no relation to the plot. I don't mind it when it is essential to the plot, as it sometimes is. But, my goodness! The society that watches that becomes a coarse society."
