Anaxagoras; or, When Words No Longer Have Meaning, “Snow is White” Becomes Morbid Eccentricity

The lasting legacy of Justice Antonin Scalia will be his articulation as to the metastasis of semantics from the bibliographic tradition into the “interpretive jiggery-pokery” consistent with word salad. He described this new form of linguistic gerrymandering as engagements through “somersaults of statutory interpretation” in his dissent to Chief Justice John Roberts’ second ruling to the affirmative over Obamacare, that “cases…
