Jury Duty

As I sit here in the jury room of the Manhattan Supreme court, I am wondering....is there a better way? Why have I been here for 3.5 hours and they have not even called one single person to participate in the selection process. What a monumental waste of everyone's time. We need a new system. Why not select people who really want to come to these things rather than forcing people to come to them. For example...you are a stay-at-home parent and they force you to come all the way down here in person to tell them that you can't participate because you have no one to take care of your children. At least there is a free internet connection.
