Scalia in Charlottesville Thursday

According to this website, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will speak at UVA Law School Thursday on "The Wall of Separation." Apparently, he will address Jefferson's view of church and state, although it is not known if he will comment on the recent Virginia decision in the Episcopal Church property dispute.

Scalia is to speak at 4 p.m. in Caplin Auditorium.

The event is free and open to the public. As usual, however, certain restrictions apply for techno types: Recording devices are not allowed during the lecture except for note-taking purposes. Videotaping will not be permitted.

Justice Scalia has a long history of discomfort with electronic media, although he apparently has overcome that discomfort to some extent in recent days to promote his forthcoming book.
