"[T]he jury room is a most remarkable - and largely inaccessible - space in our society, a space where ideas, memories, viruses, and prejudices clash with the messy stuff of the big, bad world. We expect much of this room, and we think about it less often than we probably should."

D. Graham Burnett, "A Trial by Jury"
