The U.S. flag flies at half staff at the White House in Washington, D.C. September 4, 2005. Chief Justice of the Supreme Court William Rehnquist, a conservative force on the Supreme Court for over 30 years, died on Saturday after battling thyroid cancer since October, a court spokeswoman said. As chief justice, Rehnquist pushed the closely divided nine-member court to the right, and President George W. Bush was expected to use the opening to continue his own drive to add conservative voices to the judiciary. Reuters/Mannie Garcia


No such gesture, no national mourning for the 15,000 poor and people of color who drowned in New Orleans. After win some, you lose some, right, "W"?
