Woah! Scalia's dead!?

US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia reportedly died today and there's enough sources now that I'm thinking it's true. This is HUGE. This is beyond massive for US politics and the next few months of an already CRAZY election season are about to get even crazier.

EDIT: Definitely true. Oh God the political junkie part of my brain has gone into overdrive and I desperately want to talk about this with someone! So many thoughts! I guess my condolences for those who knew him and liked or loved him. For my personal opinion... if Obama manages to get a successor confirmed by the Senate (tricky) or a Democrat wins the Presidential election in Novemeber, this will only mean good things for the nation except possibly on the Fourth Amendment (search and seizure).
