Me and Our Judicial System<< All Articles
I was scheduled for jury duty all this week, but, in the end, I wasn’t chosen to sit on the jury. I spent most of yesterday at the courthouse, which was an adventure in itself. I came away with a deep appreciation of our judicial system and an even greater one that my number didn’t get picked (although I would have done my civic duty had it been required). Now I’m free to spend time with Rhett and Claudia, our Florida friends, who are flying in to visit this week. Instead of studying the law and the judge’s instructions, I’ll be in downtown Seattle, looking at the view from the Space Needle and walking through Pike Place Market. If you see someone in Seattle with a big smile on her face, that just might be me.
