" judge in bed, a pillow over his head"







                                                                                       




Cibolo Creek Ranch owner recalls Scalia’s last hours in Texas

"We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. "


 
MARFA — A first-time guest to the Cibolo Creek Creek Ranch, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was animated and engaged during dinner Friday night, as one of three dozen invitees to an event that had nothing to do with law or politics, according to the ranch owner.
Just hours later, he would be found dead of apparent natural causes, which media outlets were reporting Sunday was a heart attack.

"We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. His bed clothes were unwrinkled," said Poindexter.
"He was seated near me and I had a chance to observe him. He was very entertaining. But about 9 p.m. he said, 'it's been a long day and a long week, I want to get some sleep," recalled Houston businessman John Poindexter, who owns the 30,000-acre luxury ranch.

When Poindexter tried to awaken Scalia about 8:30 the next morning, the judge's door was locked and he did not answer. Three hours later, Poindexter returned after an outing, with a friend of Scalia who had come from Washington with him.

I'll wait to see how believable Poindexter's inevitable recantation is. Of course the Democrat praetorian guard media who sold us Vince Foster, Ron Brown, Warren Report, TWA 800, Jerry Parks, et al,  are still very much operative.

Baxter Black, Lucky to be ... Baxter loses a friend


It's been nigh on ten year since I first posted the "So Lucky..." piece what ran daily on the RFD channel (which Verizon dumped this month).  Hadn't seen the other, but it's also poignant, and belongs sadly, I think, to another era.
