From today’s Washington Post story on the closing of legendary restaurant A.V. Ristorante — and the impact on equally legendary Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:
When Scalia arrived, his party was shown to the justice’s usual spot, a rear room, away from the other diners. At meal’s end, he walked to the old metal cash register to pay and say goodbye to the owners.
“We’re going to miss you,” Scalia said. Vasaio announced that the justice’s last meal was on the house.
On the house? We know you can’t do that for members of Congress anymore. But can Supreme Court Justices still get their pizza with red anchovies comped? We’ll let the lawyers decide.
