What a journey.
Glad to hear you're coping what seems like fine/ok.

England expects that every man will do his duty. Ha-ha!
Dad's got internet back. Dad jokes and conservative political chain emails of dubious reliability beginning to hit my inbox.

This is where I'm thankful my Dad can barely even "goggle" (his words, not mine).

What a journey.
There for hours. Participated in jury selection. Was not chosen. Was dismissed for the day.
Murder plus attempted murder case.
I had to be honest in my jury questionnaire... I question my ability, due to my nagging nausea/vomiting/et al, to be able to make it through a multi-day trial.
So much procedure... taking so much time.
If we can make our airports like super-dining and shopping centers, why can't we make our justice system just a WEE BIT like that? 21st century customer focus, wifi, fresh quac asking too much. :)

I'm amazed at the "good citizens" who brag about how they get out of jury duty, sometimes even giving up the right to vote just to avoid being summoned.

I've never been called, except when I was out of state at college, and I expect that I will hate the process, but I feel like it's a duty. Part of being a citizen.
Maybe I'll feel differently once I've been through the process, but I don't think so. It's like paying taxes, part of what you owe your country.

Sorry for the ordeal, El Jeffe. Interfacing with bureaucracy always seems to go that way. Better luck tomorrow.

I agree. I appreciated the last time I served.
But I was a bit concerned because both prosecutor and defense kept asking us/folks what level of evidence they could tolerate.
Sounded like some very graphic photos and testimony.
