    It's well within zone for a columnist to include speculation on leading cultural figures.  It is appropriate for historians, for example, to consider how Meriwether Lewis died.  Was Alexander the Great dead from contamination after a drunk swim in the river or was he poisoned?  If a U.S. Supreme Court Justice shows up an at Opus Dei event, might it not trigger speculation that he, at the very least, might affirm its basic tenets?
