Today was my day for jury duty. I went to the courthouse early so I could find a parking space, went in, did my civic duty of sitting in a fairly comfortable chair whilst reading Hamlet and watching the Travel Channel, and then the judge came in and thanked us for our time because the scumbag criminal plea bargained his way out of deep shit at the last minute.
So now I'm back at work with piles of work to do. Does that seem fair to you, dragging people away from their lives because some asshole decided he thought it would be a good idea to break and enter into a place that did not belong to him?
I don't think so either. Plea bargaining was way too good for the dumbass.
But on the bright side, I am free and clear, no more jury duty until 2009. God almighty that sounds like a long time away.
