    I Want to Get Called!!

    I was a political science major in college and the pre-law classes fascinated me.  I even took the LSAT's and scored high enough to go to Law School, but I don't think the day in and day out duties of a lawyer would have been good fit for me.  Although in my...

    Only Once.....

    I have been a registered voter for decades, but have only been called for jury duty one time.  It was four years ago, the week before I started my present job.  I had been a full time housewife and mother for fifteen years, not out in the public. I knew that the area I...

    Reported For Jury Duty Today

    Wow! It was interesting to learn more about the process of jury selection. I wished I had been selected sort of. It would have been a huge time commitment with a 10 day criminal trial with days of deliberation. But still interesting. Oh well maybe later this week. I am on all...
