In his Village Voice blog, LA DAILY MUSTO, Michael Must reports on how “actor/singer/dancer/model” (whatever!) Jonathan Lovitz – who’s soon to star in yet another original Logo sure-to-be- fiasco called “Setup Squad” – was excused from jury duty:
“I raised my hand and said, ‘Since I can’t get married or adopt a child in the state of New York, I can’t possibly be an impartial judge of a citizen when I am considered a second class citizen in the eyes of the justice system’.”
Sneaky? Sure. Brilliant? Oh yeah. Truth? Absolutely! I’ve feigned scummy things I’m not proud of to get out of jury duty once (I’d rather not say what that was), but this is not only genius, but profoundly accurate. And I’ll be sure to use it the next time I’m called by the State.
