I sure don't want a permanent jury of citizens at my trial. They would probably be selected not for their intelligence but for their political connections. I actually served on a jury once and it was an amazing experience. We started out evenly divided between guilty and not guilty and were still able to come to an agreement by careful consideration of the testimony and the law. We were all very different kinds of people but I felt that each of us was really trying to be fair. The experience gave me hope in my fellow humans.

Not all bad. You wrung two blog posts out it.
