Mentioning barbecue is disrespectful? I've planned vacations around visits to barbecue joints, driving out of the way to visit one that someone recommended or to re-visit one that I particularly liked. So when I talked about people sitting around a table at a restaurant or on my patio, eating good barbecue and drinking good beer and watching the kids play, it's not disrespectful. It's a way of saying that I'm talking about genuine, ordinary folks, in a context that is about as far as you can get from the cold marble halls of a courthouse where people and papers are shuffled from one place to another all day long.
But I'll ask the question as plainly and simply as I can, just in case you might do me the favor of a direct answer: what exactly do you think a group of people who want to be a grand jury with the powers of a grand jury must do in order to become a grand jury and have those powers?
