Default Sam Sloan appointed to succeed William Rehnquist

[Reuter's Sunday December 5, 2004]
William H. Rehnquist, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme
Court, is expected to resign before the end of the year. Antonin
Scalia will become the new Chief Justice since Scalia's opinions are
identical to those of President Bush, whenever the latter can be said
to have an opinion. (Judge Thomas, who always votes with Scalia, is
obviously inelegible.) It was announced this morning that Samuel H.
Sloan has been selected to fill Judge Scalia's seat.
