On Scalia

What is odd, is that wikipedia under Scalia's name says he claims to be an originalist but on the same page says he claims to be a strict constructionist—not really the exact same thing. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonin_Scalia)

Then looking up "strict construction" Wikipedia states that Scalia says he is "not a strict constructionist and no one ought to be, and that he also says "[a] text should not be construed strictly, and it should not be construed leniently; it should be construed reasonably, to contain all that it fairly means." ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strict_constructionism)
