: Jury Duty
Had to go to jury duty today. Out of 90 people set to be selected for a trial, I was the last one picked… number 86. Fortunately, the lawyers ran out of premptory exemptions just as I got there, so the two alternates were chosen and I and a few others were sent home. Missed it by that much. Crazy process. I find it hard to believe that anyone convicted is actually innocent (I can easily believe that people not convicted could be guilty).
