That time I tried to get out of jury duty but failed and then invited the judge on the radio to talk about it

W. S. Gilbert's illustration for
"Now, Jurymen, hear my advice."

(Click or tap to hear the interview.)
I tried.

Oh, how I tried to get out of jury duty.

Cook County Circuit Court Judge Edward Burr was having none of it.

So I served.

And it was inspiring.

But after the trial ended, I had the last laugh: I, um, summoned the judge to be a guest on my radio show later in that month of February 1996.

Listen to learn why I recommend people who have a chance to serve on a jury do whatever they can to make it happen.
