Husband went to jury duty recently and submitted the following dispatch from voir dire:

Assistant District Attorney (asked to everyone in the jury pool): What is your dream job?

Grumpy Old Guy: something where I could travel for free.

Young Woman with Numerous Visible Tattoos: food writer

Flaming Gay Man in his mid-40s: I know this is weird, but I wish I was a reference librarian. Really, I do.

So I asked him how he replied to the inquiry, and Husband told me, "I said one of those rich and famous people who can buy justice."

True or not, he was not selected to serve on a jury.
