In all that cold weather I'm hearing about, have you all died....or worse, become Nikon photographers?
;)

I'm beginning to worry about you all...

Calling all OLDER PHOTOGRAPHERS, check in please, so we know you're safe!

Simon :D

An hour behind a snow blower is not an easy thing to do for an OLDER PHOTOGRAPHER! :-)

I had jury duty yesterday and today. I was discharged on a peremptory challenge. One of the attorneys bounced me because I knew too much. Damn! This always happens!

That's why they don't let donkeys in college. Nobody likes a smart ass.

Been colder than normal here, but spring is somewhere around the corner.

I think spring was here and left. We had great weather, sunny and warm, for a long time. Trees and flowers were budding, even though they say we are having a drought. When they said that it started to rain. Supposed to rain for a week. I don't mind the rain, except that it makes the average driver stupid (or more stupid). I passed three accidents on the way to work today.

What with issues at work and the cold from H3LL I have not been doing much in the way of photography. But nest weekend I am going down to Monterey and come what may, I want to be out taking pictures!


I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

How can a juror be discharged for knowing too much? Surely knowledge is something that a juror should have?

Attorneys use peremptory challenges to exclude jurors they think will be unfavorable to their side.

It happened during the voir dire, when the attorneys question the prospective jurors. Questions can be addressed to an individual or the whole group. In theory, in a criminal trial, the purpose of this phase is to uncover biases and make sure that people understand such concepts as reasonable doubt and presumption of innocence. Sample questions: When you entered the courtroom and saw the defendant, did you wonder what he had done? Would you be more likely, or less likely, to believe a police officer's testimony than someone else's? Would you take less seriously the testimony of a witness whose native language wasn't English and who spoke through an interpreter?

In this series of questions, the prosecutor asked whether any of us would be inclined to doubt an eyewitness identification because the witness and the person identified were of different races. Now, I know, from reading, that this is something a juror should pay attention to because the error rate is higher in that condition. There was no response, so I raised my hand and said there's been research on that, and identifications are worse if the races are different. The prosecutor then asked another potential juror, who was a statistician, for his opinion on such an effect. He said noncommittally that it was possible. Then she said something else to me, I forget what, and I repeated that people are less good at identifying faces of races not their own.

A little later, the judge said that when an eyewitness identification is part of the evidence, his instructions to jurors include a list of 13 things to consider, such as whether the light was good and whether the witness knew the person before. One item, he said, is whether the witness and the person are of different races.

Then there was a recess. I thought, "She's gonna bounce me." When court resumed, sure enough: "The People would like to thank and excuse Juror Number 4 . . ."
