Scalia’s greatest strength, his steadfastness, was also his greatest weakness – The Washington Post

I do not agree that his steadfastness as described in the article is weakness, but interesting that Turley frames this way.

Scalia resisted the legal indeterminacy and intellectual dishonesty that he saw as a corruption of modern constitutional analysis. He believed that the law was not something that should be moved for convenience or popularity. Neither was he. He finished in the very same place he began in 1986. In the end, he is one of the few justices who can claim that he changed the Supreme Court more than the court changed him.
