    Re: Report: Sarah Palin quits bus tour halfway through, retreats to Alaska

    I realized how little I know about the jury-selection process and requreiemtns so I went to read up:

    Juror Qualifications, Exemptions and Excuses

    This is federal:
    There are three groups that are exempt from federal jury service:
    members of the armed forces on active duty;
    members of professional fire and police departments; and
    "public officers" of federal, state or local governments, who are actively engaged full-time in the performance of public duties.
    Persons belonging to these groups may not serve on federal juries, even if they so desire.

    Temporary DeferralsThe Jury Act allows courts to grant temporary deferrals of service on the grounds of "undue hardship or extreme inconvenience." The juror summons provides specific information on how to request a deferral from the court summoning the juror.

    Temporary deferrals for jurors are granted at the discretion of the court and cannot be reviewed or appealed to Congress or any other entity.
    State to state - it changes. . . .this is my state:
    Arkansas Jurors Web Guide

    Who may be called to serve as a juror?
    You may be called to serve if you are at least eighteen (18) years old, a United States citizen, a resident of Arkansas and the county from which you are summoned, consider yourself of sound mind and good moral character, have the ability to read and write in English, and have not been convicted of a felony.

    When I am summoned as a juror, what am I supposed to do?The date and time you are to appear at the courthouse should be written on your summons. If a written summons is not used, you will be notified by a proper official, through your local newspaper, or through the local radio station. If you do not understand the notification instructions, you should call your local circuit clerk for clarification.


    What should I do if being a juror at that time would be very inconvenient for me?
    Those persons for whom jury service would be an extreme personal hardship may be excused. If you have a serious problem, write or visit the local circuit clerk's office at once. He or she will tell you how to apply for an excuse from jury duty. Only a Circuit Judge can excuse you from jury duty.
    But there's actually nothing I've read - anywhere -that requires you to respond to a summons to jury duty.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

It wouldn't be hard for her to suggest to someone in her county that she'd just love to serve on JD. Nothing like a little JD to save face.
    and should the tour resume... your reasoning for that will be?????

    Here is the reason I think she quit:

    At that, Palin’s daughter Piper began to get impatient. “Okay, mom, please?” she begged. They started edging toward a waiting SUV.

    What are her big ideas?

    “The big ideas are for big tax cuts in order for the job creators to be able to keep more of what they are earning,” Palin said.

    “Ooookay, mom, please?” Piper said.

    Alaska Won

    How long can Sarah Palin claim that jury duty is keeping her from her cross-country bus tour? Indefinitely, in theory.

    The state of Alaska is not required to disclose if or when Palin (or any citizen, for that matter) has been called for jury duty.

    “Jury lists are confidential, regardless of who is on them,” a spokesperson for the Palmer courthouse, which presides over Palin’s hometown of Wasilla, told ABC News today.

    Um, yes.. he did indeed report for jury duty. He was, as you have indicated, dismissed by mid day. As to any 'calls and such', you have no information that proves if they were or were not in regards to his official duties as VP. Unless you do, you can't claim with certainty that they were. Just sayin.

    so, essentially, your partisan hackery is in full evidence here. She is damned if she stops the tour for jury duty.. damned if she resumes it.

    That's a lot of replies for the woman going to jury duty.

    True, but reasonably likely. He was not, like Palin, out on a tour, or doing anything liken that as far as I know. Do you?
