From this afternoon's Mouldering Clarion-Times:
Winkie Attorney Silenced

Following last week’s release of a letter that purported to identify terror bigwig Winkie as merely a stuffed animal, the judge in the case has placed a gag order on the defendant’s attorney. “This court will not tolerate the dissemination of anti-American propaganda that might prejudice a jury,” said the 765-page ruling.

The order is unusual in that it does not bar prosecutors from “off-the-record conversations in out-of-the-way places with members of the press whom that office might wish to keep apprised of the progress of this extremely important case involving our nation’s security.”

The judge also called for the defense attorney to wear a literal gag ("to be made of coarse cloth such as burlap or calico") while entering and leaving the courthouse.
