We frequently miss some very interesting things. So thanks to a reader for asking about the recent swearing-in ceremony of the newest Colbert County Commission. Just what was the judge wearing? The ceremony looks like a Satanic ritual.
We’ve attended many trials and have never once seen a judge’s robe with a hood, much less a jurist actually donning a hood…not even to pass a death sentence.
Of course, the TD’s Russ Corey didn’t bother to name the officiate at the ceremony. We don’t know if it was our friend Daniel Rosser (we’ve never been to a probate hearing, but didn’t think robes were worn) or one of the county’s trial judges.

We and our reader would just like to know the story behind the hood. Do you get paid extra if you wear it?
Apologies to the TD for utilizing half their photograph, but we knew a picture was worth a few thousand words in this instance.
Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Don’t forget to take food to the local animal shelters. In fact, why not foster a dog or cat for the holiday weekend. You just might wind up with a permanent new family member.
