Celebrity Surgical Watch....
Rehnquist Hospitalized With Cancer in Md.
Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, the second-oldest man to preside over the nation's highest court and its premier conservative figure, is undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer.

Rehnquist, 80, underwent a tracheotomy at Bethesda Naval Hospital in suburban Maryland on Saturday, the Supreme Court announced Monday. It said he expects to be back at work next week when the court will next be meeting to hear cases.
Details are sketchy, but a tracheotomy is not a usual surgical intervention for thyroid cancer. Certainly one would not be expected to return to work within a week. If he had a thyroidectomy, then certainly. As Drudge would say:developing.
