Chief Justice William Rehnquist is a Trooper

The guy is undergoing chemotherapy after major surgery for thyroid cancer, and he's still doing his job.

I don't know that there's really much of a story here, other than to remind us all that he's sick, and if you've been following Supreme Court news at all you already knew that. I'd just like to point out that since the Court routinely splits 5-4 these days, it's a good thing arch-conservative Rehnquist isn't sitting these cases out altogether.
