I'm just going to write some thoughts and observations. And then, let's have a conversation in the comments.
Twitter has over 133,000 tweets about the death already. It will probably quickly exceed 500,000. At 7:30 PM EST, there were over 500,000 tweets.

Some are speculating that he was assassinated by liberals.
Some are discussing whether he will be replaced before the new president and senate takes office.
Conservatives want the wait, some say Senate holds and filibusters will be used.
There are pending cases that, without his vote, will not get the expected conservative stamp.

Obama and the Democrats have a decision-- Appoint a moderate who will pass muster with the Republican controlled Senate or wait and hope that Hillary or Sanders win the presidency and carry enough senate seats to win a majority, so a stronger, more liberal judge can be appointed.
I'm guessing Obama will want to own the SCOTUS legacy of three appointees.
I wrote several articles saying the five conservative justices were traitors for passing Citizens United and McCutcheon, which opened US elections to foreign money.
Supreme Court Traitors Sell Out America Again
Mitch McConnell has announced that he wants the appointment to wait until next year. Harry Reid has said that it is the job of the senate to quickly fill the vacancy.
Some tweets in response to Scalia's death.
