Alabama Judge Takes Sartorial Stand 

ACS of NESL notes that another Alabama judge is in the headlines for a courthouse display of the Ten Commandments.

Going for a much more efficient medium than the 2.6 ton monument that was the issue of contention between then Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, this judge chose to have the edicts embroidered directly onto his robe. Sort of a portable display of his opinion of where the line between church and state is not.

Perhaps some more progressive judges should consider having the Bill of Rights embroidered on their robes?
