Jury duty  
So I was on jury duty today.

I spent the whole day in voir dire (i.e. listening to the attorneys quiz the other jury candidates). I was called up for two juries and was not able to serve on either of them, because I'm flying to Pittsburgh on Wednesday for the Alpha workshop and both of the trials will take longer than that. Nonetheless I had to wait for the entire voir dire process to finish before I could leave. Frustrating.

The good news is that jury service is only for one day, so even though I was not on a jury I've still discharged my civic duty for the next two years. Go me.

Thank you for showing up for jury duty. It is really important that people do it, although I know it can be frustrating.

When it comes to involuntary jury duty, I believe our civic duty is "resist, obstruct, and subvert."
