God Bless and Keep Chief Justice Rehnquist 

Why would a man who is clearly dying continue on in his post at the supreme court? I believe that Rehnquist doesn't like Bush, and like the fictional justice in "The Pelican Brief", is holding on to life to prevent Bush from filling his seat. Why else would he continue on? Why wouldn't he retire like his class make Sandra Day O'Conner?

He's trying as hard as he can to stay alive, and on the job. Most people in his condition are able to rest in (relative) comfort as they await the inevitable. He chooses not to. Whatever you think of his jurisprudence, that he would give of himself for his country until the bitter end to prevent Bush from appointing another justice is heroic.

And yes, I do know he decided wrongly with regard to the recount thing. We all make mistakes.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
