Scalia's interview with 60 mintues
Entertaining as always. Still this is more on personalities and less on issues than I would have liked. As to the parts that did discussion originalism ("people who ratified it over 200 years ago"), I thought that Scalia could have been clearer. I understood what he meant went he said that it wouldn't be a constitution if you allowed the majorities' sensibilities to determine what things mean, but I would have said something like this: The point of a constitution is to protect minority rights, if you let the majority determine whatever the living constitution means, it won't provide minorities any protection.
