Jury duty is always good for people watching, and one state courthouse may provide particularly good fodder this week, as Governor Jerry Brown is slated to make an appearance as a juror, reports NBC LA. The CA state governor has been asked, by the same kind of summons received by civilians like you or I, to call in and see if his services are needed on Wednesday. No word yet on whether he also has to call in for the rest of the week, or whether being the governor means you just have to make the one token phone call and then you can call it a day.

Governor Brown has had a busy week: today, he made the important decision of signing into law Part A of the California Dream Act earlier during a visit to Los Angeles.
