No Duty For You

I won’t waste any time on yesterday’s 7.5-hour interval spent waiting around the jury assembly room at the Stanley Mosk courthouse downtown. The end game is that my services as an eager and willing participant in the judicial process weren’t required and after a 90-minute lunch break spent walking around the adjacent mall and the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels during noon mass I returned to wait around another hour and a half before being excused.

Oh well. There’s always the next summons.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
