Jury Duty

What's Jury Duty like?
It's like being on a plane on the tarmac in Baltimore in a heavy thunderstorm. You're flight is cleared for takeoff but you can't leave until the storm passes. So, you sit there, with seventy-five other grumpy people, cramming into one bathroom, eating expensive vending machine snacks, waiting for something, anything, to happen. The chances that you will be called to sit on a jury are approximately equal to being required to perform your emergency exit row duties.
