Jury Duty

You won't be reading much from me for the next several days - I've been empaneled on a jury so I'm off doing my duty. I thought about writing reviews for restaurants in Martinez, but if you've been there, you know why I decided just to lay low for a few days.

Thanks to holton.files.wordpress.com for this cartoon. Hope it amuses.

Back soon!

Hope it's a quick one! I lucked out last time; the trial last a a day and half. Another batch of jurors in my cattle call got one that lasted six weeks.

Oh, I hate the idea of that. I know, I should be a willing peer.
But.
(Tell you what, though. I might have liked being on OJ's panel.)

I hope you get an exciting (but short lived) case to listen to and pronounce judgement upon.
And I hope they feed you properly.

Back in the day when I was litigating and had to go to CoCo County's courthouse on a regular basis, my coworkers and I used to refer to the restaurants in Martinez as "gummy food places." In other words, no teeth required. Ahh... those were the days my friend.

Kitt, after six weeks, I'd be ready to slit my wrists!

Cookiecrumb, our defendant was not as bad as OJ, thank heavens!

Morgan, feed us? Feed us? What a lovely concept! No, no food, just 35 cents a mile and $15 a day, checks that will arrive some time in the new year, if we are lucky...

Michelle, just over a week. Not too bad.

Evlmprs, that is still the case, except for the barbecue joint at the far end of main street - a little funky but pretty good pulled pork!

Back in the olden days, when I was at Uni, I got jury duty during the summer holidays. They fed us very well (at the cafe at the National Art Gallery) and provided morning and afternoon tea and PAID us, what seemed rather a lot at the time.
I hear it's not quite so grand nowadays.

Morgan, here, it's very common to try to get out of jury duty as there is no food, scant pay and lots of responsibility for deciding someone's fate. You were lucky!
