Have you ever tried to get out of jury duty? What excuse did you offer? Did it work?    'Juror 137' Had Oprah Tickets!  A prospective juror in the corruption case of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich was excused because she had tickets to one of the final tapings of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'.  I wonder if I'd be excused for having Eric Clapton tickets?!

According to the Associated Press, jury selection is set to continue on Thursday and opening statements for the trial are expected to take place on Monday.
