Noble Friends,

The Oxfordshire town of Thame is planning to bring stocks back to its 
central square: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-oxfordshire-36638698 
. I was surprised to learn from this article that there is still a law 
in England requiring every town to have a set of stocks, and that 
punishment in the stocks is still legal. The Pillory, however, has been 
banned since the 19th century.

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, Who is Glad to Be Scot
