A grim place

I've just finished two days of jury duty in Riverhead. I was grilled and processed but ultimately not chosen. They chose 6 out of a pool of about 150 to complete a jury for this criminal case and it took two whole days.It's quite interesting to see how the system works, and courts are necessary, but the overall effect is depressing--so many sad stories, so much violent behavior brought to task, such stern surroundings, bars, security checks, windowless jury rooms, bright people making their living on other people's crime. Give me a library to work in and a forest to walk in and I'll happily do without the courthouse and all its troubles.

Good idea or bad?


They accept other items, too.

Three pics from the flower show



The Three Village Garden Club Flower Show on 6/21 had many splendid exhibits. The day lilies and iris were wonderful, and I was amazed at the variety of hosta foliage. (Sorry about picture quality)
