Well, what a let down. I went to the courthouse this morning as scheduled. There must have been 30 of us total. We were there only a little over an hour. While we were being prepared by an officer of the court as to what is expected of us and what to expect ourselves, a judge came in and announced that all 4 of the cases scheduled for trial by jury today were just settled out of court and we were all free to go home.
The tears were flowing, the sadness was unbelie--just kidding! The only broken hearted people were those who took this Friday off from work who now face the prospect of going back to work for half a day. Patriotism can be rough.
I will have to try again on Friday the 15th and see what happens then.
