Rehnquist passes

Top of the Drudge Report:
“Chief Justice William Rehnquist has died…”

No link. As of now, nothing at cnn.com or foxnews.com, but nytimes.com has a brief news alert as well: “Chief Justice William Rehnquist Has Died, Supreme Court Spokeswoman Says”

He was old and very sick. My brother put it succintly, “That was to be expected.”

Things were just starting to get hairy with Roberts too (after a slow start) . . . Fantastic.

One thought on “Rehnquist passes”

  1. This is a unexpectedly tumultuous time to live through. Iraq, religious extremism, the decimation of the South, two open spaces on the bench..

    This will surely sound extremely silly, but a few years ago I really didn’t expect anything really interesting to happen in our lifetime other than advances in technology. I think we’re in for a big shift.
