Jury duty in New York

From fellow New Yorker James Wolcott:

[Jury Duty]...two words that make hardened New Yorkers break out in hives.

. . .on TV, it's the sexy lawyers who drive the action, but in the court room it's the froggy judges who set the tempo, draw the eye. Sam Waterson's McCoy. . . wouldn't last ten minutes in Judge Ira Gammerman's court . . .

Been there, done that. It ain't nothing like Law & Order.
