Letter: Show some respect

Sean Elias’ letter attacking a deceased Justice Antonin Scalia (“No justice from Scalia,” The Aspen Times, Feb. 15) is a new low, even for him. Elias has written hateful, over-the-top letters attacking Israel, Jews and even polo players, and in the most outrageous language imaginable.

One does not have to agree with most of Justice Scalia’s opinions (I don’t) to recognize his brilliance and integrity. And how about some respect for the dead.

Still can’t understand why this guy is allowed to teach young people.
