I could not bear to watch much of the festivities Monday. But it has come to my attention that Supreme Court Justice Scalia wore a cap both stately and jaunty at the Inauguration.
It turns out the cap was a gift presented in 2010 from the St. Thomas More Society of Richmond, Virginia and “is a custom-made replica of the hat depicted in Holbein’s famous portrait of St. Thomas More.”
To echo the conclusion of Matthew Schmitz of First Things:
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.
