--- Quote ---Kevin Walsh of the University of Richmond School of Law writes:
"The twitterverse is alive with tweets about Justice Scaliaís headgear for todayís inauguration. At the risk of putting all the fun speculation to an end . . . The hat is a custom-made replica of the hat depicted in Holbeinís famous portrait of St. Thomas More. It was a gift from the St. Thomas More Society of Richmond, Virginia. We presented it to him in November 2010 as a memento of his participation in our 27th annual Red Mass and dinner."


Wearing the cap of a statesman who defended liberty of church and integrity of Christian conscience to the inauguration of a president whose policies have imperiled both: Make of it what you will.

He looks like Al Capone playing St. Thomas More

Of course the issue for which Thomas More died was loyalty to the Pope.
