Never been called before and I’m kind of excited to experience this.
Well, “excited” may be too strong a word, but I’m intrigued. Juries are an expression of faith in democracy, of faith in people. The idea and the ideals are things I’ve always supported, but I’ve never experienced the process firsthand.
Today’s my chance to do that. The automated message at the 800-number they had me call last night said I should get to the courthouse by 8:30 a.m., shouldn’t wear shorts, and shouldn’t bring any weapons. Check, check and check.
Anyway, I’m not in charge of my schedule for the next couple of days, so I may have to resort to evening-only blogging until Wednesday.
