Can you hear the Rapture?

Justice Sandra Day O'Connor just retired from the Supreme Court.
She finished Stanford law school in two years and graduated 3rd in her class. (William Rehnquist was first in the same class and at a reunion a few years back everyone else wore a "I was #2" button). She found getting a job difficult for her after graduating and was actually offered a secretarial job. She became the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court and has been a moderating force on the bench. And now she is retiring. With Rehnquist likely to retire before the next session starts on the first monday in October we are in for two new Supreme Court justices who will serve for 30-40 years and who will determine how our laws our interpreted up until the Rapture comes. And if we are to believe most of what we read, W will appoint justices who actually do believe in the Rapture. And I thought this was going to be a good day.

Maybe, just maybe Reid struck the first note on this by naming 4 Senators that would be accpetable to him for nomination (all Republicans). If Bush nominates someone else, Reid has the line that he was trying to compromise, but once again it is Bush's way or the highway.

Time will tell.

Try to enjoy the weekend.
