Here is the second email authorizing us to use his name:
Dear Mr Roark:
First, I like the blog; you are congratulated, but, most of all, your contributors must first be congratulated for without them you would just be spitting into the wind.
Now, you may only use my comment exactly as written and only with my name. As for civic duty, be aware that I will be 81 years old , have never been
able to serve before by occupation even though being a resident of Dade County (Miami-Dade, ugh) since 1973.
Samuel R. Danziger
PS: Apropos yours of WSC, I have a magnetic graphic on my refrigerator -
And here is the first email from Mr. Danziger about his experience as a juror.
Tuesday for the first time since moving to Dade County in 1973 I was called for Jury duty.
Looked forward to the day. Reported at (as usual MetroRail has malfunction so Train was late – good old Dade County)instead of
After a rousing and enjoyable welcome by Judge Sloan all jurors enjoyed talking, smartphones, generally lounging.
In the AM two panels were called out and then time for the break.
In the PM, around , all remaining jurors were called and escorted from the 7th floor Juror Pool room to the elevator lobby on the 5th floor. Put around 30-40 people in that dingy area,
not even enough hard benches to sit on so some sat on the floor(sat on the floor!)
FOR TWO HOURS. No word what was going on, NO ONE TO TELL THE ASSEMBLE TO GO BACK
TO THE JURY POOL ROOM. Eventually(@ ) a little woman came to hand out certificates of attendance, and told everyone to skeddatle.
Yes sir, good old Gerstein building treatment courtesy of Dade County. Is it any wonder anyone would opt for excuse rather than attend to a CIVIC DUTY ?
Dear Mr. Danziger.
Thank you for serving as a potential juror. We apologize for the inconvenience and uncomfortable surroundings of the fifth floor. We know the Judge responsible for this all-too-common snafu will read this. Perhaps in the future Judges will be more considerate to jurors sitting outside for hours (And on the floor!!).
You were certainly owed a least a personal thank you by the Judge for keeping you all waiting. But then again, remember, this is a judge we are talking about, so we can only hope for so much.
Thank you for staying in Dade County all these years when we are sure many of your peers fled north.
And thank you for contributing to our blog.
You have done your civic duty X 3.
Well done sir!
Well done indeed.
Your obt' srvt

PS. Where can we purchase a refrigerator magnet like you have?
