Doing my civic duty

Jury duty tomorrow.
So far I'm batting a thousand.
I've yet to be selected. This even includes a federal jury where I was on call for a week.
I suspect it is because I am unequivovating in my responses to loiya's questions.  One set of eyebrows will go up, the other set into a scowl.
The scowl has historically struck me from the pool.
And then I'm on my way with the rest of my day.


  1. Good Luck.
    my last bout the entire pool was struck.
    Including the crazy guy who gave me the heebie jeebies

  2. I moved from MD, where they have a one day/one trial policy. Got sent home early both times I was called in. But it was actually fun the first time because the jury guy kept coming in and telling us funny stories about what can go on. So far I haven't been found in WV. Part of me wants to do my civic duty and the other part knows I would probably be bored out of my gourd.

  3. Hestory repeats itself. This has occurred before on a previous jury duty for me.
    The Perp went down to the 11th hour and decided to cop a plea. I've no idea what race the defendant was, but the jury panel, 65 all told, was a perfect example of diversity. No race had a majority.
    We never even saw the loiyas.
    The Judge made a good point before he released into the wild again. He said without all of you being here, we would not have arrived at this conclusion. Please do not feel like your time was wasted.
