Oh Boy, Jury Duty!

Jury Summonses; same court, same month, times 3.
Posted by Picasa

Looks like I won't be spending much time at The Bunny Bungalow next month. One of the summonses above was rescheduled for October, then last week I received two more summonses for the same month.

There was a time when I thought that serving on a jury was my civic responsibility and to be taken on with good humor. That was before I served on three different juries. That was before I helped find a school principal guilty of resisting arrest (i.e., beating the heck out of a sheriff's deputy); finding a young woman guilty of urinating in a public place at 2 a.m. and finding a young man too psychotic to stand trial.

People who go to trial are supposed to have a jury of their peers. But I don't beat up cops, piss in the streets and I'm not crazy, so am I really their peer?

Oh well, perhaps this will be another excellent adventure.
