William Rehnquist, Chief Justice of the United States, died Saturday at his home of complications from thyroid cancer. He was 80 years old. Read the AP story as well as a story from the Freedom Forum that details his impact on First Amendment law.

Something I just remembered. There was significant speculation a few years ago that Rehnquist was Deep Throat of Watergate fame. If Deep Throat hadn’t already turned out to be a disgruntled former FBI administrator, that would have resurfaced at some point now.
