  •  I would love to get called (5+ / 0-)

    for jury duty again, though not till after the move -- being retired it's not like I have much else to distract me, and I think juries need people like me to try and balance out any crazies. (Sprains shoulder patting myself on back...)

      I still lived in Boston. It was a high-profile case (a retrial for a guy in jail who didn't "do it"). I got dismissed on the second day in a voir dire because I stated clearly that it was my personal belief that no one should be in jail for drugs.

      The guy ended up being released from jail. It was a big deal.
