letting super user read .emacs

Recently our unix system was changed such that all regular users are their 
own groups also.  So user johndoe would be in group johndoe and 
permissions on johndoe's home directory are drwxrwx---.  This was done for 
security reasons.

My question is, is there any way the emacs will read in a .emacs that is 
not located in one's home directory?

My problem is that when I use the su command to become another user, I am 
forced to use the other user's .emacs instead of my own.  So I was 
thinking about putting my .emacs in a directory that is readable to all 

Thanks for any suggestions!
