I'm over to the Multnomah County Courthouse first thing tomorrow for jury duty. 7:30 am reporting time. Given my usual work hours, this counts as sleeping in. I've never been empanelled in my life but I'd sure like to. For some reason I never make it through voire dire without being cut. Since I'm off to Omaha next week on business, this might be challenging, though supposedly most trials are one to two days.

I'll report in when I can, though if I am empanelled, insofar as I know I won't be allowed to talk about it.

Civic duty, here I come!

Insofar as I know, yes. At any rate, it's going with me. Writing time!

No lawyer in his/her right mind would let you on a jury! Why, not only can you think analytically, you have such an excellent command of the language that you could convince others on the jury.

Sadly, I suspect that's an issue. I'd like to think better.

It is kind of a Catch-22, isn't it? I think you'd be a great juror, but your natural advantages probably give lawyers The Fear. Because I know you want it and because I think you'd find it fascinating, I hope you get it.
