Beat me to it... just a little more information: he died of thyroid cancer, at age eighty.

R.I.P., Mr. Rehnquist.

Wow, he died? I heard he was going to be dying soon...but I figurered it'd be after his resignation.

Wonder who's going to be put in his place, though.

Aww jeez.

Oh well, I knew he was going to die soon.

But still, such sad news! :(

Wow. Talk about being appointed for life. While I might not have agreed with some of his politics, my heart goes out to his family.

wishful thinking/ Now, lets all hope the nomination of his replacement, whoever that may be, doesn't turn into a big fiasco. /wishful thinking.

Great, another Supreme Court replacement Bush gets to pick. :/

I've always liked Rehnquist. It's gonna be weird taking all my law classes and not thinking of him as Chief Justice.
