The justices of the VA Supreme Court mostly looked a little bored, although one appeared to be taking notes. On what, I haven't the faintest idea - maybe doodling, maybe working on a case. We were just standing up when our names were called - not terribly fascinating stuff.
All in all, a lovely time. Coming home - not so much. The drive from Richmond to New Bern - not so bad in daylight, not so good on Halloween night. Someone apparently tried to commit suicide by driving an unlit, darkly painted tractor across the highway, just far enough back from the traffic signal that you couldn't see over the hill. I, the truck next to me, and the 8 cars behind us, all almost killed him. I learned in rapid succession that my night-vision isn't what it used to be, but my driving reflexes are pretty much as good as they ever were. Good to know.
