PAGE +.. POST,GAZETTE, MARCH 11, 2016 Bar'r'oR Antonin Scalia was described as the sharp- tongued conservative who transformed the Supreme Court. When Antonin Scaliajoined the Supreme Court in 1986, he made an immediate impact. Staid oral arguments before the jus- tices suddenly became verbal duels, with Scalia aggressively interrogating presenting lawyers, challenging his fellow justices, and often domi- nating the courtroom. Scalia would emerge as the intellectual leader of the court's conservative wing, and was centrally involved in landmark rulings on gun rights, the death penalty, and the disputed 2000 presidential elections. Antonin Gregory Scalia -- =Nino" to family, friends, and colleagues -- was born in Trenton, New Jersey, and grew up in the New York City borough of Queens. The only child of a Sicilian immigrant father who become a professor of Romance languages at Brooklyn College and a mother who taught elementary school, he was =doted on" by his family and put under heavy pressure to succeed. He didn't disappoint, gradu- ating first in his class at a Catholic military prep school in Manhattan and as his year's valedicto- rian at Georgetown University. Scalia went on to Harvard Law School and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1960, the same year he married Maureen McCarthy, with whom he would have nine children. "We're just old-fashion Catholics," he later explained, "playing what used to be known as Vatican roulette." As you may note, Antonin Scalia was Gaelic and Garlic! Wow! An American World War II veteran has reunited with his wartime sweetheart-- 72 years after they last said goodbye. Norwood Thomas was a 21-year-old paratrooper when he fell in love with Joyce Morris, then 17, in London in 1944. They spent a precious few days together, but lost contact after Norwood was sent to join the Allied invasion of Normandy and later returned to the U.S. The pair recently reconnected over the internet, and online donors paid for Thomas, now 93, to fly to southem Australia where Morris, 88, lives. =This is about the most wonderful thing that could have happened to me," Thomas said as he hugged his former best girl. Gee, we wonder about our English sweetheart Ann Snelson. Yes, it was during my stay in Man- chester, England, preparing for Normandy. We were in love, Anne and I. Enough said ... Unbelievable! Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was embroiled in another scandal after police said they were investigating allegations he choked a 25-year-old woman inside New York City's Plaza Hotel. Spitzer, 56, denied the allega- tions, though his lawyer confirmed that the for- mer governor had been in the room with Svetlana Travis, a Russian women believed to also go by the name Svetlana Z., who once claimed to earn $5,000 a night as an escort. Spitzler's lawyer said that Travis had =emotional difficulties," and Travis reportedly admitted trying to cut herself on thenight in question. But she denied being a call girl, and Spitzer's lawyer later claimed Travis had recanted her allegations before leaving for Russia. Spitzer resigned as governor in 2008 amid revelations that he was the client of a high- end prostitution ring. Good news for women! Having women in cor- porate leadership positions leads to increased profits, according to a massive study of nearly 22,000 public companies in 91 countries. An inCrease in the share of female managers from zero to 30 percent was associated with a 15 per- cent increase in profitability. Remember this! Women are better managers than men! Our mothers brought us into this world. They kept us healthy. They kept us clean. They fed us. They took care of our boo-boos. They did the shopping. They kept the house clean. They got you off to school. They taught you how to use the toilet. They taught you good manners. They were good listeners. And so on, so on, so on, etc ... The Washington City Council has approved a plan to pay convicted felons not to commit crimes. Up to 200 people a year deemed =at risk" of breaking the law would be placed on behavioral therapy, and ff they avoided jail time they would get a cash stipends of up to $9,000 annually. That amount =pales in comparison" with the costs of victimization and incarceration, the bill's sponsor said. The Military: Registering women for the draft! =As the U.S. military prepares to open all jobs to women beginning this year," said Dan Lamothe in The Wash- ington Post, "a key rift has emerged" over O O O whether wom- en should be forced to reg- ister for the draft. Though the draft hasn't been used since 1973, all male U.S. residents ages 18 to 25 are still required to register for Selective Service, in case of a national emergency. Now that the Department of Defense's ban on women in combat roles has been lifted, top military brass have recommended that women be required to register, too. Extending the draft to women makes sense, said Christina Cauterucci in Slate. com. Women are already serving with valor in a whole series of combat roles! They =now compose 15 percent of all active troops and 23 percent of new military officers," and will soon become Navy SEALS. =It's up to Congress to align one of our country's last remaining discriminatory laws with today's military reality." Huh? In Mexico, 93 percent of all crimes are not even reported, because of a lack of trust in the authorities, according to a new report by the University of the Americas Puebla. Of the cases that are filed, fewer that 5 percent result in con- victions. Overall, the report said, the chance of paying a penalty for breaking the law in Mexico is 1 percent. Marijuana affects memory! Many marijuana smokers enjoy the drug's short-term high, but a new study reveals that weed may also wreak long- term havoc on the brain. Specifically, researchers found that years of pot smoking could hinder people's ability to recall certain words. After his landslide victory in the New Hamp- shire primary, Bernie Sanders told his cheering supporters, =I am the son of Polish immigrants." Polish? Sanders that night became =the first Jew ever to win a presidential nominating contest in American history." Yet the breakthrough nature of Sanders' candidacy is barely mentioned, in- cluding by him. The Vermont senator hails from a tradition of fiercely secular Jewish socialists, who rejected Zionism and instead sought justice =through solidarity with the rest of the working- class." With roots like those, it's no surprise that Sanders rarely speaks of his Jewishness, never attends synagogue, and exhibits little interest in Israel. In that respect, he's like many liberal American-Jews. That's why the Jewish establish- ment didn't greet Sanders' historic win "by hoist- ing him up in a chair like a joyous Bar Mitzvah Boy." For the record, we learned all this from Gal Beckerman of The New York Times. Idea for cutting calories! Researchers in Ger- many found that eating while blindfolded caused people to eat less and feel full faster than those who could see their food. Visual deprivation re- duces that pleasure of eating, and triggers innate fears that food may be rotten. Achtung! How revealing! A new book by two British historians claims that medical records prove Adolf Hitler had one testicle and suffered from a rare disorder, called hypospadias, that resulted in his having =a micro-penis." Read this slowly. Israeli researchers found that men who regularly carried a smart phone within 20 inches of their groin were significantly more likely to have poor sperm quality. =If you're try- ing to have a baby and it doesn't happen," one researcher said, =it could be your mobile phone habit that is to blame." In 1968, Astronaut Wally Schirra (Italian- Swiss) circled the earth 163 times with Apollo 7. Schirra, who flew 90 combat missions during the Korean War, became the first astronaut to fly three different types of space craft, Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. Our show biz know-it-all and musicologist AI Natale reveals via Edward Dmytryk, "Clark Gable had only one rule. He always quit at five, I think so he could start drinking. Gable was quite a drinker ... In the evening he was a very heavy drinker. As a matter of fact, he told me once that ff he couldn't drink he'd just as soon die." Clark Gable passed away, November 16, 1960, and is at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, California. The funeral of =The King," perhaps Hollywood's greatest idol ever, was held with a closed casket because he said, =I don't want a lot of strangers looking down at my wrinkles and my big fat belly when I'm dead."
