Turnaround, or fair play?

imagesLast week, John Roberts reported for jury duty, not as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, but as John Q. Public at Maryland’s Montgomery County courthouse.  He wasn’t selected in the end, but he came within measurable distance of serving as an ordinary juror on a case that would determine damages in an automobile accident.

Does this reflect what’s best in America, that no one is exempt from performing his civic duty?  Or is it symptomatic of the most absurd form of political correctness, which demands equivalence in all arenas and all situations, no matter how un-equivalent they may be?

So what do you think:  would it have been worth shutting down the highest court in the land so that our top jurist could sit in the place of an average citizen?  Leave a comment with your take on the question.
