here's an article if anyone's interested:

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20041025/ap_on_go_su_co/rehnquist_cancer_11

granted texas1 gave all the information in that article that isn't background, except for my favorite part:

"It added he expects to be back at work next week when the court will next be in session."

who wants to bet that if we had a different president, rehnquist would take more than a week off after a tracheotomy?  i love that man :)
