Postings may be lighter than usual this week.

Tomorrow morn, book/daddy joins his fellow citizens in appearing for jury duty. Justice will be dispensed, the current evil administration shall be vanquished. The republic shall be upheld.

Or maybe I'll just duck the whole thing in voir dire by yelling, "To the stocks with all of them!" and getting myself thrown out.

ADDENDUM: Funny, it turns out that Ron Hogan over at Galleycat has jury duty this week, too. Is our justice system picking on bookbloggers? Or do we just make exemplary jurors?

As opposed to say, criminals.

Ahh jury duty. Good luck! The only time I got called for it, I sat reading a book for a while and then got sent home.
