I have been summoned for jury duty this week for the first time in my life. It is amazing the court system never caught up with me until now but it was bound to happen eventually. I’m lucky. I report to the Kirkland Municipal Court which is a few miles from our home and is not the place hardened, life-sentence criminals are judged.
It’s not a good week to miss work but, apparently, that doesn’t qualify as enough of a hardship to get excused. One surefire way is to show up wearing a “Free Mumia!” T-shirt.
This should be interesting.
