I am amazed. I have always wanted to participate in jury duty, but every time I get the letter inquiring about my eligibility, and I am either a candidate or an officer of a political party, I shortly thereafter get the rejection letter.
Not this time! I am no longer a candidate, nor an officer of a political party, so I am hereby summoned! Apparently, when when statuses like these change, a person goes from interested insider to objective citizen in a flash.
No matter, I am excited! I will be juror in the later part of this month. Can't wait to see what the case is about!
