I have to be honest--Justice Scalia has never commented on this blog that I know of, although I am pretty sure he's a regular reader. I was just trying to get him to come clean by including his name in the poll. Coy, that one.
There is potential for mischief when it comes to speculating exactly why I named my personal sidearm after one of our commenters, particularly considering the options presented . . . but I'll leave that fun to you. The correct answer is Monique, a person I've never met but whose comments (particularly those on the last post!) and personal correspondence I have appreciated. I think she and I were in contact about something around the time I acquired this sidearm, and her francophonic variation on one of the Church's great mothers fit perfectly. And speaking of fitting perfectly, I'm surprised that Bella Band doesn't list "holster" among the applications of its versatile product.
(Need I mention that we are not idiots and are very serious about gun safety, and yes we've heard that scary statistic? Well, just in case.)
