Doing my Civic Duty

Guess who got called for Jury Duty?  Yes, I am thrilled to have been so honored.

I’m going, and I’m not going to ask for a release just because it could cost me money (it will).  I served on a jury when an undergrad, and it was quite an experience.  I’ve cleared most of the week on the off chance I get chosen, so I’m not cynical about my civic duty, but I’m not hoping to be chosen, either.

Frankly I figure no two sides of attorneys want me on a jury at the same time.  We’ll see.

I was thinking about jury movies, and the one that best fits me is this one.  Except, I’m not Henry Fonda, in body or spirit.

Update: It took all day. Not selected. I’m glad, as it was a case of alleged child molestation.
