The Lady Justice

Having written the last article reminded me of a very funny event that happened in GWB's first term. You might recall the minor flap (which should have been a much bigger story, dealing with certain very obvious psychological issues) in which then Attorney General Ashcroft had the statues of the Lady Justice covered so he wouldn't have to be in the presence of her exposed breast.

Seems Mr Ashcroft was to speak in the Great Hall of the Department of Justice about shifting emphasis toward the War on the Rights of the American Individual (misnamed for popular misguidance, The War on Terror). At some point during his speech, or setting up for it (unclear) he noticed those pale orbs above and behind him. He developed a facial twitch.

He ordered that the offending statues be encased in burqas so that he could continue.

'Tis rather telling, when the US Attorney General is unable to stand comfortably in the presence of America's primary symbol of Justice. You have to wonder about the devils in the shadows of the mind of Mr Ashcroft.

They've killed Freedom! Those bastards!

Warm regards,
