America loses a great public servant

Solicitor General Ted Olson, whose arguments persuaded the Supreme Court to order a constitutionally acceptable vote count in Florida and who later lost his lovely wife, conservative comentator Barbara Olson, in the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon, will resign his position aftr the current Supreme Court term ends this summer.

After his wife's death, Olson became an outspoken defender of administration policies in the war on teror. Recognizing the flagging support for that effort on the part of the Left, in 2003 Olson recalled the deaths of so many Americans on 9/11, in particular his wife, who stayed on the phone reporting what was happening until her flight hit the Pentagon. "Their suffering and deaths must fuel our dedication to stamp out this cancer," Olson said.
