Did you hear the one about the Judge who embroidered the Ten Commandments to his robe? He said, “The Ten Commandments can help a judge know the difference between right and wrong.” Personally, I think they ought to wear shinny silk robes with their names embroidered on the back. Then, when they enter the courtroom the bailiff could introduce them in style, “He’s been presiding over this court for ten years, he’s the beast of the brief, the king of the courtroom, his honor and your ruler, Judge – William – Haldeman!” (I made that name up. I don’t mean to criticize any particular Judge.)

Another thing they could try is embroidering the constitution and state statues on their robe. Some of them could use some reminding about those little things too.
