Not your typical jury duty...

I have been summoned for a Federal Grand Jury. The courthouse
is in San Francisco -- more than 73 miles away (an hour and a
half at least). The term for a grand juror is 18 months.
(Tuesdays only.)


I have to call on Tuesday, September 26, for reporting instructions
on Wednesday. I guess that's when they choose who to pick. I don't
know anyone who has even been summoned by a federal district court,
much less served on a grand jury.
