“Every cloud has a silver lining, and one of the benefits of the exclusion of women from most professions was that we had wonderful teachers, especially the women who today would probably be CEOs.”

This is Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia reflecting on his childhood in New York City for New York magazine’s “Childhood In New York” issue, which was apparently quite lovely because of sexism. Might I remind you this person sits on our nation’s highest court in the land? Wonder how many times Justice Elena Kagan has to stop herself from rolling her eyes. [NYMag.com]
