Alas my opportunity to perform my civic duty went unfulfilled today. I arrived promptly enough at the Boulder courthouse, but after waiting for sometime I discovered that I wouldn’t be needed. Not because I was too opinionated or too apathetic. Not because I was unacceptable to the prosecution or the defense. Not because I was too smart or too ignorant. No, simply because there were no cases today. No questions asked; no interesting interviews, just “you’re obligation for the year is complete.”
I suppose that’s much easier, but I can’t deny I was looking forward to the experience.
