It is not often that one witnesses true humility in a public figure. Here is a rare case. The Chief Justice could have made known to the court and his fellow citizens who he is, or he might not have shown up at all, claiming privilege of his high office. He did neither of those things. Instead, he took his place in the queue and he was questioned like any other juror. The only sign that he might be someone special were two security officers accompanying him. That was almost certainly a requirement. In PR, we spend too much time burnishing the clay feet of clients and trying to make digits look like metal. It's nice to have a leader who doesn't need it.
