This ain't no Law and Order!
Sorry I haven't commented to you guys yet.

Today I begin jury duty as an alternate juror. All the boredom without actually participating! This young man "allegedly" sold crack cocaine 5 different times over a couple of months and they know the exact weight of each sale as well as the date, time, and location. I'm must guessing, but I'm thinking he was selling to a Fed? So, we'll see if his public defender is the next Johnnie Cochran, or if he be screwed.

Sinus drainage commenses to beat the band, thus to make sitting still ALL DAY even more pleasant. Sore throat, dry heat, not enough fluids, no foot props or computer/TV. How will I survive?

The good news, I probably won't have to work Friday night. Still on for Saturday and Sunday, however.

I say huzzah.

Second thought...I don't think I'm too interested in jury duty anymore. I couldn't stand to have to sit for hours and hours. I'm used to being up and around and snacking and chatting with my co-workers, etc. Hope you can get through it...

The selection process was handled by the judge for this one. Not bad at all. I could see where a 2 or 3 day trial in the Federal system wouldn't be too bad. Don't dread it, but I wouldn't go trying to get selected either!
