Jury Duty

Yep, I’ve got it this week. Had to go in on Monday, sit in a room with 300 other citizens and then get told that the prosecuting attorney was ill. All the time I was envisioning how a Web service or well-placed smart-client application could have eased our boredom.

I was outta there by mid-morning; but, it looks like tomorrow my number came up again.

The pay? 9$ per day for the first 3 days and $25 per day thereafter. “While people should not profit from jury duty, people should not suffer economic loss for fulfilling civic duty.”
