Jury Duty

I was ready...
I brought two books...
I brought a pocket full of quarters...
I waited for seven hours...
They never called...

I want to be on a County Jury 
so that I can experience our system in action 
and do my part to Protect and Serve 
and provide Justice to all. 
But I was not needed. 
Sigh, disappointment, maybe next year.

What's this?  
A summons for all of next month for the Federal Courts up north.
Drive two hours, 
stay overnight 
with the potential of serving on a six month trial.  
Six months!
Never mind!
