Civic Duty is Totally Rad!

So yesterday I was summonsed to the local county courthouse for one of America's longest standing and most cherished traditions; jury duty! Lame, I know. the horror stories of jury duty are widely known and involve hours upon hours of tedious boredom as potential jurors await there fate in a small room with no AC and stale donuts. This however is no horror story; it's a literary celebration.

I get up early, shower, trim the ol' beard, but on respectable clothing and get in the car to drive to the courthouse. I show up early to make sure I'm not late and so I don't have to wait in line for too long. At 8:30am the doors open, I go in through the metal detectors, and up to the potential jurors room to check in. I give her my name; Fish. SkinnyFish. A little bit of thumbing through some dot matrix printed pages and this is what I hear, "Your session has been canceled. You can go."

Civic duty fulfilled. Booyah! USA! USA! USA!

This comes after Capitals manager Brent Bowers unleashed a homophobic tirade against a gay umpire in a game  on June 30th. Sucks that this was the case of it, but this kind of step by LaForge is a small one in the right direction.
