This is Why they Don't have Middle School Jurors

That's the beginning of the conversation my daughter and I had on the way to school this am.

Her history class has created a mock courtroom, where there are two sides, of course. One is defending the captain at Andersonville Prison in the South, and the other side are prosecutors. J. is on the defendant's side.

"I know now why they don't have middle school juries," she said. "They just side with who they like the best."

Hate to tell her, but that's probably true of adult juries too. I'm about ready to find out if that's really true in a few weeks, when I go on jury duty. Since I'm out of the news biz now, I may even get seated.
