I Solemnly Swear

The line to get into the courthouse for jury duty.  It wrapped around the building.
Yesterday I had to appear at the county courthouse for jury duty.  I was originally scheduled for March, asked them to push it to the end of June, and then because I was home this week decided to go down to the courthouse to see if I could get it out of the way.  I was told I could attend any Tuesday or Wednesday if I was in town.

I was excused in less than three hours.

And what I learned, from listening to other potential jurors responding to the judge, is that if you say right up front that you're unable to be fair and impartial, they let you go.

I'll have to remember that for next time.

I always used to listen to IMUS (Don Imus) on 660. He got called to jury duty and told the interviewer that if the NYCPD arrested someone they must be guilty as the NYCPD doesn't make mistakes. Excused!!!
