Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Double Header?

Drudge is running with the siren and unofficial reports confirming Robert Novak's (and others') predictions that Chief Justice of the United States William Rehnquist is indeed handing in his resignation today. Nothing official, he says, and K-Lo over at Bench Memos thinks the fact that the Chief left home wearing his Nike cap again signifies that he is still going strong. Stay tuned. If the letter does come today, though, the weeks-ago scheduling of the Chief Justice of Southern Appeal -- Feddie -- on tonight's (6-7 pm EDT) Catholic Answers radio show (discussing the Supreme Court, of course) will look awfully prophetic!

UPDATE: (Hat tip to Feddie) Erick at Red State blog has it on excellent authority that the Rehnquist resignation is in and that the president will announce this once his plane lands in Washington at 4:50pm. Boy is Feddie cutting it close with his Catholic Answers show!

UPDATE 2: Doh! Stay tuned Monday, though. Conventional Wisdom, for what that's worth, is that the Chief delayed sending his letter due to the terrorist attacks in London...or that the White House has delayed the announcement for the same reason. CNN has an interesting story on this (un?)exciting day.
