  The Onion on Rehnquist's Retirement

First the Beatles, then the New Kids on the Block, and now the Supreme Court?

The Onion Supreme Court To Break Up If Rehnquist Leaves:
"Bernard Tomaine, publisher of the Supreme Court fanzine The Docket, characterized Rehnquist's role as 'essential.'

'When Rehnquist leaves, it's going to be the end of an era,' Tomaine said. 'He's absolutely irreplaceable.'

Added Tomaine: 'I've got a bootleg copy of an opinion that Rehnquist wrote for U.S. v. Verdugo-Urquidez that would blow your mind.'

Although the associate justices have yet to announce their plans following the dissolution of the Supreme Court, Tomaine said he believes that many will continue on with solo judiciary projects.

'I don't think they're ready to give up interpreting the law just yet,' Tomaine said. 'I wouldn't be surprised if a number of these justices get together and start something very similar to the Supreme Court, but under a different name. I heard that Scalia wants to set up a new organization under the name 'The U.S. Supreme Court featuring Antonin Scalia.' Personally, I think it's very disrespectful to use the name of that honorable institution, but I suppose it's his right.'"
