Had my day in court today. Actually, it wasn't MY day, and I didn't actually make it to court. This concerned the hit and run I witnessed back in January, while I was out for a run. Unfortunately, I didn't witness quite enough - because I was directly behind the SUV that did the hitting and running, I didn't get a good look at the driver - only the back of his head. Enough to tell that he was an older white male, but not enough to positively identify him. Apparently that made my testimony useless, and after sitting around in the hallway for a couple of hours, I was told I could leave. I should get a check for $26 in a couple of weeks, though - woo hoo! Plus I got some good reading done - started an older John McPhee book on Alaska.

Well, even if you didn't get to have your say, at least you got some quiet time to sit and read! And maybe learn a little of how the court system works in the process?
