Why there was no stand in the courthouse door

Gov. Bob Riley says his Republican opponent, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, actually asked him to call out the National Guard to defend his granite friend a couple of years ago. One of Moore's attorneys said he only asked Riley to "hold a press conference and issue an executive order saying that as long as he were governor, the Ten Commandments monument would not be removed from the Alabama Judicial Building."

Fortunately, Riley declined to do either.
