Jimmy’s first Death Panel Duty is not going well at all. Since he left a sheltered homeschool life for college, he now has to follow the same rules as everyone else. That includes getting an Anti-Racist Tattoo, a bar code containing all his life stats, and of course, attending mandatory Panel Duty. Panel Duty is required of all citizens -- thirteen-member panels decide who Jimmy’s first Death Panel Duty is not going well at all.

    I'm not rating this as I have no idea what I would rate it, but here are my thoughts on it in case they're helpful for anyone. I would've liked it to have been longer and spent more time developing events both before and after the story, but at the same time it works well at the length it is. I rarely read dystopias and haven't done any trend extrapolation for a while, so I can't really comment much on the ideas that were presented. Some things seemed a bit random - I can't see the death panel I'm not rating this as I have no idea what I would rate it, but here are my thoughts on it in case they're helpful for anyone. I would've liked it to have been longer and spent more time developing events both before and after the story, but at the same time it works well at the length it is. I rarely read dystopias and haven't done any trend extrapolation for a while, so I can't really comment much on the ideas that were presented. Some things seemed a bit random - I can't see the death panel actually occurring, but as that's the basis of the story and the title of the book I just accepted that it happens in this version of the future. The presence of a Taser was surprising. Not knowing much about them, I again can't really judge whether that's likely, but I would've thought that a different weapon would be in use by then. However, again, I don't know much about Tasers and it could be that they are going to be around in however-many years. Also, the ending was interesting. This again links back to the length point; I would've enjoyed knowing more about the reasons for what happened at the end and what it's supposed to accomplish, because at the moment I'm confused about the latter, but it provides a good ending for the short story. Sorry - I'm trying to be vague enough to be spoiler-free because spoilers suck (literally, they suck some of the emotion from reading something for the first time) while still making the point.
