Glad he's in Chicago...

Speaking of juries, Windy Pundit is being called up for jury duty. Love his photography and reading his point of view, much as I disagree with it, but would definitely be striking him off any of my jury panels. Nothing personal, mind ya! He's particularly miffed by the paltry $17 and change he'll get for the privilege of serving his community.

I know it's nothing personal. On a big case, I would fully expect to be Googled by both legal teams. If you're a prosecutor, and you get me on a case with a victimless crime, bumping me off the jury is probably your smartest move.

As for the $17.20, look at it this way: If you're a waiter, and one of your customers leaves no tip, that could mean he doesn't "believe in" tipping or that he forgot. But if he leaves you a nickel, that's a message.

Yeah, I know. Bitching and moaning is in my nature. It's why I blog.

For whatever it's worth, in no way did I try to shirk my duty, and I have the $51.60 to prove it.
