Live from jury central
So, here I am on jury duty.
So far, I've been sitting in the cavernous central jury assembly area waiting to be called.
I'm delighted to report that the court provides Internet access for jurors while they're waiting to be questioned for cases.
Cfrost was absolutely right to recommend coffee. In fact, as I was lining up to go through security to get in, an official made an announcement: "Those of you who are here for jury duty are allowed to hang onto your coffees." Generally, there's no eating or drinking allowed outside the designated lounge areas, but they make an exception for jurors and coffee. It's officially recognized that justice requires adequate caffeination.
