Do you think Giuliani will be fair?No. I think he has an inherent prejudice. He has a bias. He supports the NYPD no matter what, for instance.

Should famous people be excluded from jury duty?No one should be excluded except for people who are sociopaths or felons.

Who would not make a good juror?Strom Thurmond, that senator from down South. I wouldn't trust him.

Who would you like to judge you?Bill Cosby. He's smart and seems fair, especially in the situation with the person who killed his son.

Do you think Giuliani will be fair?I would like to think Giuliani would be an impartial person, but referring to his complete bias as mayor, I don't think so. It doesn't ever seem like he considers other issues wholly.

Should famous people be excluded from jury duty? Of course not.

Who would not make a good juror?Anyone who blatantly subscribes to any political party.

Who would you like to judge you?Warren Beatty. I'm into the fact that he might be running for president. The job of the politician is to represent the people's view. And I think that's what he's trying to do.

Do you think Giuliani will be fair?What's the race of the individual suing? If the individual were nonwhite, Giuliani may not be as impartial.

Should famous people be excluded from jury duty?Yeah, maybe. Being a celebrity has a lot of effect on the situation.

Who would not make a good juror?O.J. Simpson.

Who would you like to judge you?I wouldn't want any celebrity to judge me.

Do you think Giuliani will be fair?With what he does in the general scheme of things with New York, is he fair? I don't think so. He's targeted minorities and made the rich richer.

Should famous people be excluded from jury duty?Celebrities, in general, could be disruptive. But everyone should do it or do some other social work.

Who would not make a good juror?Jerry Falwell.

Who would you like to judge you?It'd be nice to have Noam Chomsky, Chuck D, and the Dalai Lama on one panel. That would be an event.

Do you think Giuliani will be fair?I feel he's going to do a fair job. He's the mayor and he knows the law. I'm not a fan of his, but he'll be fair.

Should famous people be excluded from jury duty?Everybody should do it.

Who would not make a good juror?George Steinbrenner.

Who would you like to judge you?I don't like judging people. But if I had to pick, maybe Henry Stern, the parks commissioner. I like what he's done with the parks.

Do you think Giuliani will be fair?Yeah. He's showed his colors running the city. He's pretty honest and up-front.

Should famous people be excluded from jury duty?Everybody should do it. If I were called up, I'd do it.

Who would not make a good juror?Howard Stern. I think he'd go the opposite of everyone else.

Who would you like to judge you?Pataki would be pretty good.

Do you think Giuliani will be fair?I'd say yeah. I've been a juror myself. You're supposed to look at the facts. Your opinion shouldn't matter.

Should famous people be excluded from jury duty?They should serve.

Who would not make a good juror?President Clinton.

Who would you like to judge you?The Lord almighty God. Especially if I were guilty. He'd have mercy.
