Sad

Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist passed away last night. This is very sad. I hardly know what to say. Rehnquist served on the Supreme Court for 33 years. His strength lay in unifying a divided court. Rehnquist voted for decisions that he disagreed with a few times that I remember. Some of those I disagree with. But I do not disagree with his reasons for voting the way he did. He made these difficult decisions based upon changes in the times. Many of his decisions reflected his leadership qualities and his more conservative reading of the Constitution. Rehnquist was a wise justice. I am sorry that he is gone.
