SCOTUS update (Rehnquist)

I'm not sure quite how serious it is, but Chief Justice Rehnquist was taken to hospital with a fever on Wednesday. The Post reports here. Needless to say, speculation that his retirement is imminent is rampant. Whatever one may think of his judicial career, however much one may agree or disagree with him on any number of cases, he is certainly a courageous man struggling with a terminal illness, and The Reaction wishes him a speedy recovery from this latest setback and all the best beyond that. In simple terms, this is a case where everyone should be on his side and where partisan differences should be put aside to recognize the life and career of one of America's most prominent and influential jurists.
