Back from court in Holbrook, AZ
A rough trip and a rougher hearing, but still it was nice to visit a courthouse where--
1. If you look like an attorney rather than a criminal defendant, security tells you not to bother going thru the metal detector.
2. There is a sign above the drinking fountain saying don't spit your chewing tobacco into it, use the wastecan.
3. The judge enters the courtroom by the back door, stands beside the bench and puts on his robe, then goes onto the bench and jokes that this rather reduces the drama but he'd rather not waste the time of going into chambers.
