Chief Justice Rehnquist Dies

Chief Justice Rehnquist died Saturday night after a year-long battle with thyroid cancer. See the NYTimes story. I'll be interested to see how this plays out given other things such as Iraq, Katrina, Roberts' confirmation, etc. I think we as a nation have somewhat of a difficult time focusing on more than one important thing at one time, we're so accustomed to moving along to the next thing with the news cycle. I sincerely hope we are able to maintain charitable efforts toward Katrina relief while also following the Supreme Court story through what I think will be a long debate.
