We operate under a jury system in this country, and as much as we complain about it, we have to admit that we know of no better system, except possibly flipping a coin.
Today, right this moment, I am sitting in the back of the jury room doing my patriotic duty.
It smells funny.
The security guards were pretty hardcore.
They took my keys with my father's Swiss Army knife on it (I have to pick them up on my way out).
I wasn't allowed to bring in a bottle of water.
But the Courthouse has WiFi. God bless America.
