Something About Jury Duty and Worldcon

For some reason, I seem to get a jury-duty summons every second year or so just before Worldcon. This time, the summons date is the Wednesday before I leave for Japan. I have applied for a routine deferral to October. Every time I've asked for a deferral before, they've not actually called me again, but just put my name back into the box and called me a year or two later.

Mind you, they still haven't corrected my name in their records, despite me having repeatedly told them that it's "Standlee," not "Stanolee." Typos live forever, it seems.
