My beau had jury duty. For two days, he reported to the courthouse and listened to other potential jurors being questioned. No reading is allowed in the courtroom, so that was pretty much the only entertainment. He was surprised by how many of the people interviewed had advanced degrees. Many had worked or did work at the University of California, Berkeley, and nearly everyone had been the victim of some kind of crime at some point in their lives. That makes me a little nervous and I wonder if it’s a case of “them that has and them that will”.
