Funk nite at the BL pt. XXXIV: Funky Scalia (and Bob Dylan, and Noto. RBG)

     ...But for those who want more than an up do (not that there's anything wrong with those), but Antonin Scalia actually singing by his funky self, check out Reuters, GINSBURG: Scalia burst into a Bob Dylan song the night after the big gay marriage ruling. Fab!

     Funk it up!
