Scalia speaks out on Roper

I noted here earlier today the widespread criticisms that the Supreme Court's work in Roper has generated, and Justice Scalia has apparently joined the Roper-bashing bandwagon.  Thanks to Howard at How Appealing, who provides the links here, you can hear Justice Scalia assail Roper during a speech today at a Washington think tankThe speech is summarized in this AP report and this MSNBC article.

UPDATE:  TalkLeft has this extended post discussing Justice Scalia's speech and examining more broadly his approach to the Eighth Amendment.
