Friends tell me to consider myself lucky but I feel slighted, frankly. Because I’ve never been picked for jury duty.
I’m a registered voter, pay property taxes, give blood, occasionally give to charities and generally behave most of the time as an upstanding citizen.
Yet I’ve never been picked to serve on a jury. Why not me? At least once a year I’ll read an article on how sitting juries are difficult – people get out of it, the eligible pool is small, demographics, whatever. And yet here I am, ready and willing to serve our judicial system!
