They held me hostage! It was horrible! I got summoned for JURY DUTY! They herded us into a room like cattle leaving us for hours.

Jury Duty is our civic duty! That's right!


They should pay us our actual daily wage for at least one day! Not that $15 dollar a day, 34 cents a mile nonsense.

BE Prayerful! BE Careful! BE Mindful!

But as more Blacks serve on jury panels, justice is served more equaly.

(I just did my three days before being released - and we get $40 a day here in Texas.)

I've never had the pleasure of serving on a jury, but they're always requesting my husband to serve.

I'm surprised they reimburse anything at all, to tell you the truth!

Serving on a jury is a necessary nuisance. (lol)

Pittsburgh’s G-20 story: Take an expressway from town and disappear into desolate ‘hoods and encounter the civilization of menace. Pittsburgh, a dual city! The glass wonder of PPG Place and/or the G-20 Summit is a faded memory. Here in the ‘hood lives lie abandoned as far as the eye can see.

That is: For the most part, African-American Pittsburgh seems to be invisible, not only to the public relations hucksters who tout Pittsburgh’s successes, but we are equally invisible to the protesters.

Certainly, black Pittsburgh is as proud as anybody in that the black President we worked so hard to elect has selected Pittsburgh as the host of the G-20 Summit. We even enjoy the re-invention of Pittsburgh from a dirty, smoky steel-churning history to the bright, clean, green financial success that the business leaders and politicians boast about so loudly. Nobody is more proud of the Super Bowl winning African-American coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike Tomlin. But none of that feel-good stuff erases the pain of the stubbornly high unemployment among African American young adults and the staggering dropout rate for young black males from the public school system.

LOL. Sorry about your jury duty, Jaycee. I've been called 5 times and I'm young. It makes no sense. Some people are never called. Crazy, right?

The computer here must love me. I moved to another county and still got
