Good morning fellow Hubskiers and welcome to the ersatz pubski!
It has been a long week for me. I spoke with my parents for a while on Friday and now I am writing a letter to them. I'm not sure what I want the conclusion to be yet or if it's one of those letters you write and never send.
I served on a jury (as a back-up juror) Monday and Tuesday. It was a he-said-she-said statutory (and actual) rape case. The testimony was harrowing even just to listen to.
