Luck runs out

For the first time in my life, the jury draft is after me. I may be 4F for this one because of my abysmal hearing. I certainly hope so.

ETA: First thought, worst thought, contrary to what Allen Ginsberg said. I repeated a nasty remark about people willing to serve on juries that on firther reflection, i do not believe, so I have deleted it. I resist state control on principle, but I realize things would be even worse without taxes, so I accept those. I didn't stop opposing the military draft when I became too old for it, and I have my doubts about the jury draft, but I realize that other people feel differently about it, and I have no business condemning them for it.

And my hearing really would make me a for-shit juror.
