The buzz

The buzz in Washington is that Chief Justice Rehnquist will resign today at 4:55 p.m. eastern time, when President Bush is slated to land here. I have no idea whether this is true, but we’ll soon find out.
JOHN adds: Guess not. I don’t understand what’s going on here. He’s obviously going to resign soon, right? I wouldn’t think he’d try to begin the fall term, and he’ll have to resign soon to get a replacement in time. So what’s behind the delay? Beats me. Maybe he wants to wait until President Bush nominates someone to replace O’Connor.
