Three more ways to stay off the R. Kelly jury, get that county check

From court this afternoon:

1. Tell the judge that you think that the age of consent should be lowered to puberty. One senior with a white beard said, "My son says nature already provided an age of consent - puberty. It made sense to me."

2. Gush about R. Kelly being a "Musical genius." Call him by one of his preferred nicknames, the "Pied Piper."

3. Keep talking about Kelly's right to a "speedy trial" even though Kelly waived that right, and even though the judge had explained the series of mishaps that led to the case being delayed nearly six years. Say Kelly "would be out by now" if the case had moved faster, even though Kelly is facing up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
