Jury Duty

His nibs has already served his jury duty for the year. He spent days a few months back on a jury deciding the fate of someone who asked that a jury decide whether he was guilty of possession of paraphernalia with intent to commit graffiti, or some such crime.

I was called for jury duty in February, but asked to have the jury duty postponed until this week because we were due in St. Louis for AAAS for an extended Presidents' Holiday weekend and then were heading out a day after we got back from St. Louis for three weeks on a trip to South America and places souther.

This week's the week, and luckily for me, I can check a Web site after 5:30 p.m. to see if my Juror Group needs to be down at the courthouse the next day, and if so, when.

A "nope" for today. (I felt like I was on holiday.)

A "nope" for tomorrow. (... which is good because I have a date down in Los Gatos to sign some papers for the escrow that may close some day soon)

We'll see how the rest of the week goes. Maybe I'll get on a jury with a decision to be made about the guilt or innocence of someone accused of possession of paraphernalia with intent to commit graffiti.
