Then there is Justice Souter suddenly retiring. He isn't sick, hasn't had a history of illness, really isn't on the verge of death, hasn't suffered even half of what some of the other justices have, but is suddenly done. This is the one where I wonder if he had a private audience with someone to talk him into leaving so a more "suitable" justice could be selected. This is the story that just seems...strange.
Maybe I'm losing my mind, overly suspicious and just need to resign to making some tin foil hats... :)
