“After a few days to take the new name out for a spin, what was the new Antonin Scalia School of Law’s acronym nickname shaping up to be? The Internet (read: Twitter) seemed most enthralled with these two options: #ASSol and #ASSLaw. Or #ASSoL at George Mason, for those who felt like going long.”
Saw this in the WaPo yesterday afternoon. Have been LOLing ever since. Not sure that’s how Scalia would want to be honored! In retrospect, it seems so obvious… The donor was anonymous. I wonder if that person had thought of the acronym?
" The Antonin Scalia Law School is a logical substitute," Dean Henry Butler wrote.“A combined $30 million gift financed by an anonymous donor and the Charles Koch Foundation prompted the change originally as the gift was contingent on naming the school after the late justice.”
