I think that it’s always a big deal when a government official passes away, and the recent death of Justice Antonin Scalia is no exception. First of all, he was a long-time member of the Supreme Court, so everybody was used to him and his policies; now they are going to have to choose a successor, who will be an unfamiliar quantity. In addition, his death was unexpected--that always leaves an impact. Finally, his death leaves the Supreme Court evenly split between conservatives and liberals, which might lead to changes in the government.
