Today I received a summons for jury duty. A few years ago I would have complied cheerfully (I did once before) but now I felt my attention span was getting too short and I might fall asleep in the jury box. So I filled out the web form politely declining on account of my age. The reply I got back said I was excused and the explanation given was: TOO OLD, ONE-TIME EXEMPTION. So it is now official that the government expects me to get younger.
