The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Dear Fellow Citizen,

Congratulations on your selection for jury duty in Palm Beach County.

The right to have legal disputes decided by members of the community is among the most valuable features of our American system of government. The preservation of that right, guaranteed to all of us by the Constitution, depends on the willing participation of all eleigible members of the community. In this important sense, your participation is necessary to the strength of our American democracy.

Though serving on a jury can be burdensome not only financially but in time and energy; it can also be very rewarding. Florida law provides that you may not be dismissed from your job because of the nature or length of your service on a jury. Everyone has a duty to serve when called.

I look forward to seeing you soon, and thank you for your service.


Kathleen J. Kroll
Chief Judge, 15th Judicial Circuit

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
