Having recently been summoned for jury duty by the Multnomah County Courts for 2/21, today I received in the mail an entirely different summons for jury duty by the Multnomah County Courts for 2/28. Apparently I'm quite popular as grease in the wheels of justice.

Well, obviously, it's the suit.

In DC they used to always send notices out to the folks that showed up (and then also to a random sampling from the voter roles).

As a result you could end up getting summoned every 3-4 months!

Still I think two weeks in a row is a bit much.

Make sure you get your first judge to give you a note for the second one!

And then, of course, Jay's reason for not sitting on the first jury for more than a couple days is because he'll be busy on the second.

I now have the "Perry Mason" theme rolling around in my head. Not necessarily a bad thing because it was a wonderful, classic theme.

Of course it's because you work at home -- and everyone *knows* that means you don't *really* work so you can *afford* the time :>.

Silly people...
