I certainly was. If you ever decided (like an idiot like me) to fully read some modern supreme court decisions, despite the fact that he was on the wrong side of history and had some really dumb ideas. He was EASILY the best writer on the bench, and was a nice break from the other, much drier writing styles of the other justices.
Like during the gay marage decision, he wrote a minority opinion. Unlike the other justices who basically played dumb word games to say they weren’t subverting decades of jurisprudence. He just basically said: “you have to say you were wrong in the past or you’re just idiots”. While he wrote for the wrong side, I agree with his sentiments there, if you’re making gay marriage legal, you also have to admit it should have been legal in the past.
He was a straight talker and I certainly miss him. Gorsuch is a boring old fart.
