Jury Duty

I have jury duty in a matter of hours. I know sitting on a jury is one of the foundations of our country. Blah, blah, blah. I just want to go home and sleep.

If asked I think I'll just say that I believe that every Jew is innocent and every gentile is guilty. Or I'll talk about the- conscious or subconscious- discrimination people of color face within the justice system and that it is my job to rectify that wrong. Maybe I'll explain that I've always idolized Henry Fonda's character in 12 Angry Men and I've just been waiting for my opportunity to emulate his performance. But if I had to bet, I'd say I'll get selected to a 3-year long trial about some obscure tax law. This might be the one time I wish I lived in Zimbabwe.
