A DISCUSSION OF LAW AND JOURNALISM

Spaghetti Strainer as Cowboy Hat?

Spaghetti Strainer

By LASIS Staff

In April, LASIS reported the story of an Ohioan who refused to take a pasta strainer off his head when taking his DMV photo. He was a Pastafarian, and doing so, he said, would have been violated his First Amendment rights as a Pastafarian. No dice.  The headgear had to be removed.

So it surprised us to learn that a DMV permitted a Pastafarian to leave a spaghetti strainer on as headwear for his official photo in  – of all places — Texas, a state not known as a bastion of tolerance.

Then again, nothing that happens in the Lonestar State should surprise us.
