Something a little fun just happened.

I serve on juries but the number of times I have alerted on a post I would say is miniscule. maybe never.

Anyhow. Just reading a thread and at the bottom there's a post by a person whose total post count is 4, and it could have been written by [insert name of right wing pundit]. I blocked the poster and moved on and within 10 seconds got called to jury service.

that was the easiest decision i ever made on a jury.

I've used up all my hearts.

It was fun. I gave to people I hold in the highest regard here on DU and on posts I agreed strongly with or was impressed by the concise and thoughtful language of a post I believed was important.

I have enjoyed it. DU is my valentine - I really don't observe the date except to maybe call my son and make sure he's done something special for his fiancee.

thank you to everyone who took the time to give me a heart.
