William Rehnquist, R.I.P. 

Chief Justice Rehnquist has died.  This is a loss to the nation.  

Well, to most of the nation.  To the cable news networks this is a boon—between the hurricane, Roberts’ confirmation hearings beginning soon, and now speculation on who the next SCOTUS nominee will be they’ve got enough gripping stuff to fill 18 hours a day.  Probably cracking the bubbly over the likely rise in advertising revenues this new story will bring right now.

UPDATE: I’ve been scooped by my partner.
