Jury duty tomorrow

Man, I'm psyched. Nothing better than spending a day with my fellow degenerates. And then there's the defendant!

Good for you going and not being one of the ones that were able to come up with an excuse. You will be surrounded by very bright individuals that lead busy lives.

It's going to suck, but I can't honestly say I should be exempted. My hope is that counsel from one side thinks having another attorney on his/her jury second-guessing every move he/she makes is more trouble than it's worth.

Keep your fingers crossed for me.

My apologies for using the vernacular. Now that we call it "service" I suppose it's supposed to make us feel better about it.

I always answer the summons, but they never let me stay...
none of those folks ever like my answers....
and one judge got when she interrupted my answers, and in response to her question i told her that long ago i learned the difference between what was right and what was legal and that i would always do what i thought was right.

actually i did get on one jury once, i hung the thing, and when it was over they judge called me aside and asked why i voted the way i did, i told it was because of the lawyers...
she said she thought the lawyers did an excellant job.. i told her i did too, one did a good job of insulting my intelligence the other of insulting my morality... she was not happy...
