Long Courtship

I am still in court. The judge estimates that it will last another two weeks. He did not tell us if this fortnight's duration meant 'til the end of the trial phase, or included the jury's deliberations. I am reminded of Ogden Nash's famous "Kind of an Ode to Duty."

"O Duty, Why hast thou not the visage
Of a sweetie or a cutie?
Why glitter thy spectacles so ominously?
Why art thou clad so abominously?
Why art thou so different from Venus
And why do thou and I have so few interests mutually in common between us"?

Write. Send e-mail. Send benzedrine tablets. More later.
