New York Magazine has an interview with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and there’s a ton to learn from it. Tom Finkel from the Village Voice wrote, “Antonin Scalia: I feel less comfortable when everybody agrees with me. I say, I better reexamine my position!” Jen Senior tweeted: “My interview with Antonin Scalia, who finds the WaPo unreadably liberal and schools me on the Devil.” Philip Bump added, “Antonin Scalia gets most of his news from talk radio, so that's a mystery solved.”

In the Wall Street Journal, John McCain writes of Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap, who died on Friday, He Beat Us in War but Never in Battle. Peter Baker at the New York Times tweeted: “@SenJohnMcCain recalls how the late Gen. Giap ‘grasped my arm and said softly, 'you were an honorable enemy.’’” Justin Green from the Washington Examiner added this quote from the piece: "He dismissed that too, with something like, ‘the party's decisions are always correct.’” Matt Gutman at ABC News said, “This is as much a testimony to @johnmccain as Giap.”

Bloomberg, will start spending more than $1 million’ on ads for Booker. #NJSEN.” James Taranto at the Wall Street Journal challenged: “Betcha can't say ‘seemingly frivolous skirmishes over Twitter messages involving a stripper’ 5 times fast.”
