Fun while it lasted

From the it-was-too-good-to-be-true department, this is now on the Harvard Crimson's corrections page:

"In reference to Scalia Describes 'Dangerous' Trend: The Sept. 29 news story 'Scalia Describes 'Dangerous' Trend' misquoted Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia as saying that 'I even take the position that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged.' In fact, Scalia said, 'I even accept for the sake of argument that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged.'"

War Room cited the original Scalia comment as published in the Crimson as a "quote of the day," but sadly, it turns out that what he actually said wasn't quite as juicy. We're still not sure we would want to listen to Scalia talk about orgies under any circumstances, though.
