I got called into voir dire but not chosen, so I’m done with jury duty for another two years. The people who work at the courthouse couldn’t have been nicer- from judge to juror office administrators, it was a smoothly run day in old D.C. Does anyone sense the tinge of surprise in my words? Anyway, after I left, I walked to the White House, just to keep up the civic engagement I had going. It’s a hell of a hot day here-currently “feels like” 100, so the walk was not completely pleasant, but I enjoyed it nonetheless and really liked seeing Michelle’s kitchen garden on the WH lawn. Off to the market -how do we drink so much milk?!- and head home. Nice day!
