AP IS REPORTING THAT CHIEF JUSTICE WILLIAM RENQUIST is in intensive care, hospitalized for treatment of thyroid cancer.
The next president of the United States may appoint THREE justices, and maybe four, to the Supreme Court.
Four more years of the Bush administration may galvanize a more cohesive and organized Democratic Party than is the case today — but a balanced Supreme Court, women’s right to choose to have an abortion, and our privacy writ large may be part of the irreparable damage of these times that cannot be reversed.
Rehnquist’s illness should sober up some voters. I still wish Chief Justice Rehnquist a speedy recovery.
