Jury Duty - Dirty Story

This post describes the highpoints of my day Wednesday.

The arrow points roughly to where I sat around for the entire day on the 11th floor of the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Courts Building. I was making myself available to serve on a criminal trial jury . They didn't need me.
They also serve who only sit and wait

The white pointy building in the middle is Los Angeles City Hall.

Budget Rent-a-Car 626 831 5244 I took this picture on the drive home. A new low point in real estate advertising in Pasadena. For that price it's probably a condo. I enhanced the sign a bit to make it easier to read.

In the evening Leslie and I watched Penn Gillette's (completely legal) movie The Aristocrats. I loved it. Leslie left the room after about 5 minutes.

CLEAN Aristocrats Video: Here's a the trailer suitable for viewing anywhere. (No actual dirty words or concepts. Lots and lots of innuendo.)

Here's the Aristocrats website.
