Justice Scalia Wins Lifetime Achievement in Writing Award from Scribes

At a luncheon yesterday at the Harvard Club in New York City, Scribes conferred its third-ever award to recognize lifetime achievement in writing.  The recipient was Justice Antonin Scalia, who suggested that Scribes come up with a new name for that award because it reminded him of the Lifetime Oscar that is given to an actor or actress who is frequently nominated for an Oscar but who never wins.  We will have a fuller report later on Scalia's award and on the other awards conferred yesterday by Scribes, along with some great photographs.  Congratulations to Joe Kimble (executive director of Scribes) and the Scribes leadership for organizing a great program yesterday.
