civic duty

I got summoned for jury duty... 180 miles away. yes! this silly letter was sent to my wichita address, I have a wichita driver's license and voter registration, yet they expect me to show up in Kansas City. I called my friend who works in a courthouse and she was like, "You can call and ask if it was a mistake, but if it's a federal trial, it might not be. You might just have to go."

I'm kinda bummed, because honestly I wouldn't mind being on a jury, I think it sounds exciting. But I'm taking classes for my master's and would have to drop them, given the length and location of this trial. So I don't think it's gonna work out. But I'll try. What I don't understand is why they can't find enough Kansas Citians to be on their jury... there's like a million people up there, and they're calling little me up?
