Something really strange happened to my Wednesday post about almost being a juror. It disappeared before I could respond to comments. Go figure. Pressed the wrong button? I dunno. Anyway, my apologies to those who had a comment. Because then it came back -- minus the comments!
Meanwhile, here is the promised book review for Book Review Friday. This is a re-post from Sacramento Book Review. By all means, check out the site and read good reviews by other reviewers, as well as some essays by interesting columnists on a variety of topics.
