Courting Disaster

I was once told to never whisper anything that I would not say in open court. Can you back it up and confront someone in a court of law with witnesses and evidence? If not, you do not have a case.

I was recently in a courthouse with other people called for jury duty. We need to make it easier for more people to be jurors. It is as important as voting. The waiting room had a large television showing the impeachment trial. It had a hundred senators as jurors but offered no witnesses or evidence. Any county judge would toss a case that did not have basics of of a trial. Why even have jurors? Why make people go to law school and study to pass the bar? Democracy is about getting a second opinion. If it is all arbitrary, we are courting disaster.
