Jury Duty Over And Done

Without ever being called in for an actual jury.

Massad Ayoob went over the jury selection process in the classroom portion of the MAG-40 class I took earlier this week. He explained how "lightweight yuppies" are considered ideal candidates. The last thing they want on juries are people who have experienced violence and who have made a committment to never letting it happen again.

Too bad.

Did you enjoy the class? I found Ayoob to be very entertaining and very informative. As long as he teaches the class, his programs are very worthwhile.

I'll keep that in mind if I'm ever selected. Wonder if that's a good enough excuse to skip out on civic duty if I know in advance that I'm out of the running? I'd love to send to be able to send all the stuff back with something like "Sorry, but I think you meant to send this to someone else?" on it.

Eh, probably too un-American...
