Incidentally, I note that the little inspirational video about jury service
that we all had to watch at the beginning of yesterday’s proceedings
featured Ed Bradley and Diane Sawyer. Couple of questions on thst.
1. How did this pair of raddled old lefties get to be the public face of
jury service? Sean Hannity wasn’t available?
2. I have a dim recollection — perhaps a reader can refresh it — of a
gossip column item (prob. Cindy Adams) from a couple of years ago about
Lesley Stahl showing up for jury duty in Manhattan, and being excused
because she was “working on an important project.” Do Ed Bradley and Diane
Sawyer actually perform jury duty when called? Or are they, like their
colleague Lesley, too darn important?
