A Supreme shows his bias.

BRUCE A.
BRENNAN BLOG FROM THE WORLD AND MY MIND

The news as
I see it and the views as I want them.

October 22
is … National Nut Day

 

After babbling my way
through yesterday, today is like the real play, not rehearsal; it is nut day,
celebrated vigorously in Washington DC, the Nation’s nut bowl.

 

Susan Sarandon is an
ignorant whore. Oscar-winning (it was a weak year) actress Susan Sarandon is feeling the
heat from Catholic and Jewish groups after reportedly calling Pope Benedict XVI
a Nazi during an interview with actor Bob Balaban at the Hamptons Film Festival
in New York on Saturday. Her talent and looks left her quickly, as did Tim
Robbins. She should cease trying to relive her past glories. No one cares about
you, Sue.

 

Even a Supreme can be wrong. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has a
vendetta against deep-dish pizza. In January, he told California Lawyer
that New York pizza is “infinitely better” than the pizza in Chicago
and Washington. Back then, he mentioned that he didn’t really think deep-dish
pizza should be called pizza, and tentatively suggested “tomato pie”
as an alternative moniker.

 

Since then, the strict constructionist has only dug in further on the
matter of deep dish. Speaking at an event at the Chicago-Kent School of Law,
Scalia ruled definitively that Chicago-style deep dish is not pizza, even if
it’s pretty good. The Chicago Sun-Times‘ Abdon Pallasch writes:

 

“I do indeed like so-called ‘deep dish pizza.’ It’s very tasty,”
the high court’s most outspoken conservative said after a moment’s hesitation.
“But it should not be called ‘pizza.’ It should be called ‘a tomato pie.’
Real pizza is Neapolitan. [from Naples, Italy] It is thin. It is chewy and
crispy, OK?”

 

Chicagoist took issue with Scalia’s deep-dish pizza opinion, arguing that
the Neapolitan founding fathers of pizza “could not have envisioned modern
technology, New World inventiveness or the American appetite for excess.”

 

Scalia probably thought he was doing his duty as a loyal New Yorker when he
decided to attack the fat cylinders of dough and marinara sauce that Chicago
calls pizza. But in the process, he unintentionally insulted the people of his
birthplace, Trenton, N.J.. All agree that the best pizza in Trenton — a more
significant matter than it sounds like it would be — comes from a joint called
DeLorenzo’s. But unlike its peers in New York and Chicago, DeLorenzo’s does not
call its magnificent pizza “pizza.” What does it call its thin,
chewy, crispy disks instead? Tomato pies — the term Scalia oh-so-innocently
suggested as a new name for Chicago-style deep dish. So even if Scalia meant
just to disparage Windy City pizzaioli, he ended up offending the entire
population of the capital of New Jersey.

 

Let’s hope Scalia doesn’t decide to take on New Haven apizza next.
That city has a far longer history with the Supreme Court than Trenton does;
things could get ugly.

 

Just a couple of thoughts I had and you should too or at least think
about.
