    Today, just for a change, we bring you Manic Nino.

    EDITED TO ADD: Fun though headlines like this one are (I admit to a fondness for if-it-bleeds-it-leads journalism), the actual facts seem to have been better captured by the NYPost's crosstown rival the NYDaily News, which wrote (hat-tip: How Appealling, of course):
    [T]he jurist was making a rhetorical point - not revealing himself to be a swinger in black robes. The quote was taken "out of context," court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said. The text of Scalia's Harvard speech shows that his "orgies" comment came as he derided a European court decision that struck down a ban on group gay sex. "Let me make it clear that the problem I am addressing is not the social evil of the [ruling]," he said. "I accept for the sake of argument, for example, that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged."
    So that's what that's all about. Looking forward to the cartoons, though.
