I know he's thick-headed and conservative to a fault. Still, someone close to him should take him aside and point out the irony here — explaining to him that old maxim about when you point the finger at someone and there's three pointing back at you.

…To back his interpretation of the gesture, Scalia in his letter quoted from Luigi Barzini's book, "The Italians:" "The extended fingers of one hand moving slowly back and forth under the raised chin means 'I couldn't care less. It's no business of mine. Count me out.'"
