    How would you like to be the judge in a trial with a Supreme Court Justice in the jury box? "I will now instruct the jury on the law in this case", and she gives you a dirty look! What if the case was later appealed to the Supreme Court? I appreciate that she set a good example (not to mention avoided a minor controversy) by doing her civic duty.
