visitors, commenters, writers, bloggers, jurors
I have really missed being home, although I have learned a ton. Everybody should participate in jury exercises. Strangely, I was assigned jury foreman, so thank gawd I saw how the process goes yesterday. Hung jury again. I said guilty, because the gun tied it all together for me. There was a very fidgety and over-excited prosecutor today, and after the whole exercise I suggested he work on his poker face, look more studious. The defense attorney was a bit of a bombshell, to use an old-fashioned term. She would sit back in her chair and cross her legs in her little mini skirt. I am a bit old-fashioned. I think that if she is going to wear a little skirt and she is trying a case, she should sit forward and keep her feet planted. I suggested to her that her body language was too relaxed, no, I did not spell it out: tiny skirt equals big distraction. But then again, she was a defense atty. with a difficult case, so maybe.....?

CM--lunch was superb, even for a vegan or vegetarian. Box lunches, hummus for me, turkey or roast beef or whatever for everybody else, muffin table, good coffee and tea, all catered. Too much for me.
