Tina Dupuy Wins BrooWaHa Contest

tina_dupuy_pic.jpg

Stand-up comic Tina Dupuy won the BrooWaHa writing contest with a nifty essay on jury duty, Stand Up, Sit Down, Do Your Civic Duty .

The notice stated that jurors should dress “business casual”. But this is LA. I’ve always considered “business casual” to be something ironed worn with uncomfortable shoes. Maybe it depends on your vocation. From the looks of some of the other jurors plodding along the halls of the courthouse their “business” was either a Crocs model, a lifeguard or an adult industry professional. It’s justice that’s blind…as for the rest of us–we see you.

Dupuy’s not exactly a novice, as she’s a HuffPoster and written for the Daily News. She also blogs.

FBLA encourages the LA Times to snag Dupuy. She’d be a welcome addition to the Op-Ed section–maybe even a replacement for Joel Stein.
