Lowering the flag

Recommended Posts

The (virtual) flags at the RONR Forum are lowered to half-staff (or half-mast, for the sailors among us) this week in honor of the late the honorable Mr. Justice Scalia.

A good example of Scalia's methods of interpreting the Constitution -- and an interesting topic of parliamentary procedure -- can be found in his concurring opinion in NLRB v. Noel Canning (starting at page 60 of the PDF), which deals with the meaning of "the Recess of the Senate" in relation to a "Session" of the Senate and the U.S. President's power to fill vacancies in office.

With concurrences like this, who needs dissents? :)
