The trial is over. It was an excellent and difficult learning experience. When the case finally came to the jury to deliberate, it was a gender war in the jury room. I have never experienced so much emotion and yelling (well, maybe with my parents...) Anyway, we found for the plaintiff, who had been a Playboy playmate and was treated with excess force by a police officer. At least that's what 5 out of 6 of us on the jury agreed to.
I'm happy that it's over and I'm very glad I did it. It was fascinating to be in a courtroom and to experience being a member of a jury. February, usually my least favorite month, went by very quickly for me.
There have been horrible tornadoes in the midwest, the Republicans are ridiculous, Rush Limbaugh remains a jerk, life goes on. I'm grateful that spring is coming in just a couple of weeks. And now I'm taking dance classes twice a week. I wish I didn't get so dizzy when we practice the turns, but I still love it.
