WASHINGTON (AP) - Justice Antonin Scalia's death deprives conservatives of a key vote that could change the outcome in some major Supreme Court cases, including one in which labor unions appeared headed for a big defeat. Next month's Supreme Court arguments in a clash over contraceptives, religious liberty and President Barack Obama's health care law also now seem more likely to favor the Obama administration. Those are the most immediate effects on the court of the loss of its conservative icon and longest-serving justice. It's a firm Supreme Court rule that decisions are not final until they are handed down. So nothing Scalia did or said in pending cases matters to the outcome.

The unexpected death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia - and the immediate declaration from Republicans that the next president should nominate his replacement - adds even more weight to the decision voters will make in November's general election. For months, the candidates have espoused theoretical, sometimes vague, policy proposals.

Candidates in both parties moved quickly to reframe the election as a referendum on the high court's future.
ECATEPEC, Mexico (AP) - Pope Francis condemned the drug trade's "dealers of death" and urged Mexicans to shun the devil's lust for money as he led a huge open-air Mass for more than 300,000 people Sunday in this violence-riddled city. "Let us get it into our heads: With the devil, there is no dialogue," the pope said at the biggest scheduled event of his five-day visit to Mexico. Francis brought a message of encouragement on the second full day of his trip to residents of Ecatepec, a poverty-stricken Mexico City suburb of some 1.6 million people where drug violence, kidnappings and gangland-style killings, particularly of women, are a fact of life.
