The Chief Justice died yesterday in suburban Virginia. If there was anyone on the bench who deserved a long and rewarding retirement after an exceptional career, it was him. His tenure as a justice and chief justice of the Supreme Court will ensure his place in history is secure, unlike that of many of his colleagues who served with him.

Reinquist never intended to retire. He like being Chief Justice too much to give it up. I don't mean that as an attack on him, or a tribute. It is just what he was.
