Hermit Magister, Part 4

"It turns out that barristers and lawyers also prize birth cauls as, apparently, they had worn birth cauls upon their heads to denote wisdom. Which is presumably the origin of the barrister's wig."
-- Alan Moore in "The Dark Side of the Moore," as quoted by Omar Martini, pg. 109, in Alan Moore: Portrait of an Extraordinary Gentleman, edited by smoky man, Gary Spencer Millidge and Omar Martini, Abiogenesis Press, Leigh-on-Sea, England, 2003.
