It was a little chilly, getting up half an hour early to get to the Daley Center in time for jury duty, but I am happy to participate in the civic life of our community. The right to be tried by a jury of one’s peers is a precious one, and a right afforded to too few people the world over, and throughout human history. Our justice system may be in dire need of reform in a myriad of ways, and I am sure juries are not perfect — but they are better than what we had before. Slowly, slowly we progress. Glad to do my small bit as part of the process.
