The jury is out...

I am on jury duty this week. This is the fourth time I've been called for jury duty. I am just one lucky fellow. This means I get to do my civic duty for the fourth time and pass judgment on my fellow citizens.

Judge not lest ye be judged.

But that aside, it is an interesting process that unfortunately I am not allowed to talk about until the current trial I am on is over. Once it is, you can bet it will become fodder for my blog cannon.

I just wanted to say that in way of explanation to those two or three people who actually read my blog why I haven't been prolific this week.

But trust me, justice is being served:

Do you want fries with that settlement?

I've been called for jury duty 3 times but was never selected for a jury. I actually wanted to be selected. Mostly out of curiosity I suppose. You see this stuff on TV and wonder if it's like that or not. Plus I work for the county government and get paid for jury duty.

Also, it seems you are right when you assume only a handful of people read your blog. It's a mystery to me though. Your stuff is fantastic. So I guess you have a small but devoted following.

I've always wanted to serve on a jury. But...I tend to think that most people are guilty regardless so...I probably wouldn't be the best choice. Living too long with a cop, I guess. Thanks for serving.
Regarding exactly why you don't have a lot of readers, I think I have it figured out. And...I have pondered this for quite some time considering that your writing is awesome. I think it is the lack of links. You don't have a blog roll to link back to your favorite blogs. The longer mine got, the more readers I have. However, sometimes you wonder if they really like your stuff but are just commenting in order for you to read their blog.
Thankfully, I realized this "quid pro quo" game and now only read the good ones.

Thanks lights in the wake, I like to think I cater to a more decerning audience.

Shandi, everyone is guilty of something, so you'd make a good juror. And thanks for the advice about adding a links column (as soon as I can figure out how to do so).
