"was a juvenile court judge in Minnesota. He used to tell a story about a delinquent boy who came into his court and didn't know what the Ten Commandments were.
Judge Ruegemer had an idea: print up copies for courtrooms and classrooms.

Still, if that 16-year-old boy were before him again, "I'd do exactly the same thing. I'd sentence him to learn and live by the Ten Commandments. The difference is, now I might have been reversed on appeal."
That was about the same time that "under God" was added to the Pledge of Allegiance.
