Retiring the colors
Naturalization ceremony, 9 Dec. 2009, U.S. District Court, Honolulu
I was subpoenaed to testify as a fact witness before a grand jury in Honolulu yesterday. Of course, it was great to get away from our miserable weather for a couple days. But spending seventeen hours on a plane is less fun than watching games from the London Chess Classic or the Ponomariov-Gelfand World Cup final. And gorgeous tropical weather notwithstanding, I'll take Chicago.
When the grand jury recessed for a sushi break, I got to witness the end of a naturalization ceremony.
