Jury Duty

Let me say this first - I'm proud of our legal system. It's not perfect and there are injustices perpetrated all through it, but it's pretty darn good and the intent really is justice for all. And that it's done by a bunch of very ordinary citizens conscripted for the purpose instead of assigned or professional, and most pretty unwilling, is part of it all.

The other thing is that I found the procedures of the day to be FASCINATING.
