Jury duty

My number came up and so I’m headed to Pomona Superior Court this morning to do my civic duty. Wish me luck!

* Update: I’m returning to the courthouse Tuesday but will post something here anyway.

    Good luck. If your experience is anything like mine, at least you’ll have a good opportunity to get ahead on your reading. Of all the times I’ve been called, never been empaneled. Just sat all day in the juror’s assembly room with a good book in hand.

    I would have thought you’d be disqualified as a member of the fourth estate. Here’s a tip if you get tired of waiting around — raise your hand and when you are called on, ask if the state allows hanging. Your jury day will be over.

  • Hello there, simply was alert to your weblog thru Google, and located that it is really informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels. I will appreciate in case you proceed this in future. Many other people might be benefited out of your writing. Cheers!

    “public relations” writes a comment which is indecipherable? Go figure.

    Let me know if you spot any brussels (sprouts).

    Love ’em.

    [I just deleted 24 spam comments from overnight, but I guess I’ll leave that one up since you’ve remarked upon it. I don’t get the “brussels” part either but the Google “translate this page” button is a likely culprit, or a thesaurus. I get a lot of almost identical spam comments whose wording seems to devolve amusingly from message to message. Ones that compliment me on my “paintings” rather than my “postings” are especially fun. — DA]
