Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia often says judges should avoid the spotlight. But he apparently could not resist when he was invited to be the grand marshal of the highly visible Columbus Day Parade in New York City on Oct. 10. “He is a great Italian-American whose achievements are a source of inspiration and pride,” says Lawrence Auriana, president of the sponsoring Columbus Citizens Foundation. What tipped the scale for Scalia, apparently, was the prospect of re-creating his childhood memory of leading his high school’s marching band. “I marched down Fifth Avenue many times as part of Xavier High School’s Regiment,” Scalia said in a statement released by the foundation. “For an Italian kid from Queens, there could be no greater thrill than to march one last time, as grand marshal of the Columbus Day Parade.”
