Blog on the Run: Reloaded

Once more into the breach. Or breech. Or bench. Whatever.


I think I mentioned once before, although I’m too tired to go look for the permalink, that I get called up for jury duty pretty regularly. It has happened again.

Jury duty isn’t as bad here in N.C. as it once was. We’ve switched to the 1-day-or-1-trial system, which is good, and here in Greensboro there’s free parking, although I’ll probably just park at the office and walk, especially if it’s a nice day.

But in other respects, they’re bumming me out, man.

For one thing, they’re saying, “DO NOT BRING CHILDREN TO THE JURY ASSEMBLY ROOM WHEN REPORTING FOR JURY SERVICES.” Even though you know the other 150 or so people would really appreciate Victoria and Hooper’s beauty, wit and charm.

For another thing, they’re getting all stuffy on me: “Appropriate dress is required.” I mean, my God, if you can’t wear inappropriate dress in a jury box, then what’s the point of calling yourself a free country?

And, finally, the ultimate buzz kill:

ABSOLUTELY NO WEAPONS ARE ALLOWED IN THE COURTHOUSE.
I mean, where’s the fun in that?
