  • To hold the destiny of another human being in your hand - to the extent that one can - is a humbling thing.

    Last week I served my first jury duty.

    Although I'm free to talk about the details of the case, I'm choosing not to. The details aren't relevant to the point I want to make.

    Before the trial, I joked with my friends that I had been practicing.

    I didn't think it would be all that difficult to come to a decision about the case. Yes or no. Guilty or not guilty.
