Also discussed: the “odd couple” friendship between former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and former Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; how this can be a model for how people engage in political discourse in modern society: we can disagree about ideas strongly, but we must love those with whom we disagree.
