Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was in Orlando today at a ribbon-cutting ceremony dedicating the nation's newest federal courthouse, which was built to the tune of $102 million.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the robed Thomas used one of Winston Churchill's famous quotes for the occasion: "We shape our buildings; therefore they shape us."
It was unknown if Thomas' itinerary included stops in the city's famed theme parks but amid great fanfare, Thomas later was treated like a rock star. He signed autographs, posed for pictures and greeted the crowd that included district judges, politicians, prosecutors, federal agents, lawyers and courthouse employees.
