Parking Authority Nails Scalia

From philly.com: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/heardinthehall/scalia.html

Someone forgot to tell Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to park in the middle of the street. Instead, his driver parked in a loading zone during a visit to the Union League Monday, and the ever-efficient Philadelphila Parking Authority quickly issued tickets for the Supreme Court cars.

Parking Authority executive director Vincent Fenerty is a Republican, but he showed no mercy Tuesday for Scalia, the court's conservative standard bearer.

"The vehicle was ticketed and the ticket is valid," said Fenerty, not long after hearing news of the Scalia violation from a reporter. Two cars were ticketed at a cost of $31 each.

Kathleen L. Arberg, the Supreme Court's public information officer, would say only that "the ticket was issued to a U.S. Supreme Court vehicle driven by a Supreme Court police officer."

4. Guessing the driver or the Court will pay, probably not Scalia.

6. He'll ignore the ticket saying "I am the freaking Supreme Being"

and then he'll write a book about the "low life asshole" who once had the nerve to ticket him.

The title of the book will be "When you are me, you park where you want."
