Lagniappe: Jury Duty

I may be called for jury duty next week. Will have to listen to the recording the night before to see if I am called up.

Funny story from my bud Alan Beck. Herb Brown, the late Nobel Prize winning chemist here at Purdue, left to go to Sweden to collect his prize, while his wife stayed at home. She got a call from the police, asking where her husband was, and they were going to pick him up to bring him to jury duty, which he had forgotten. She exclaimed "He's in Sweden getting a Nobel Prize!" Pause at the other end, and the caller said, "Lady, now I have heard everything!"
