I was scheduled for jury duty this week but was able to go on the Harris County website and in 15 seconds reschedule for a day that is more convenient - after tax season. They take any excuse. I assume you can only do this once.

Thursday I report to Superior Court in Trenton for possible choice to be a grand juror.....no getting out of it. If Mrs. Bruno Hauptmann were to seek overturning the verdict, I'd vote for it. No one gets indicted by me.

If I had gone on Thursday, I would have voted for the death penalty for a minor traffic violation.

Semi-hAppy to say that though chosen, and the jury meets every Monday for 20 weeks, the Judge permitted me 3 of the next four Mondays off....only have to travel the 55 miles on the 6th....then every Monday after the deadline. Judge loved the name of the company.

Just got the initial questionaire for feds. Have never been called to duty, and actually would like to do it when I have time. (my terms, my schedule, my convenience.)

Filled in the bubble for "do you care for minor children" and explained my husband's schedule of work won't allow for him to take over the care from Dec. to September. Court is 2 1/2 hours away. Suppose the feds would take a part-time juror?

If I had to answer the "do you care for minor children" I would answer:

(1) Not particularly

or

(2) That girl said she was 18.

That way, I do not have to worry about jury service anymore.

Didn't W.C. Fields say he preferred them par-boiled or something like that?
