Here we are at the waning days of summer and my biggest concern is time.
(It really isn’t but I’m trying to be entertaining this Saturday morning.)
So, I ask you, what time is it.
As I type it is 10:46 EDT but is it really?
Time is never a constant. It’s probably the one thing that started to divide our nation.
Some states, and even counties within states refuse Daylight Saving Time or is it Standard Time that they reject? Anyway, there is a movement, that I thought proved to be successful, which would do away with the biannual ritual of resetting all our clocks to conform either to daylight savings time or to revert back to standard time.
But, apparently, we are destined to once again fall behind on November 6th.
To be sure it has become a less arduous task as many of our devices automatically make the switch. iPhones, iPads, cable boxes and other devices will all make the task easy for us. Of course, I will have to change the time on our microwave and oven and the big clock that we have high up on a kitchen wall. So, I really shouldn’t be complaining.
But come on, this is a rather simple fix if we could all just agree to fix the time issue once and for all.
Who am I kidding?
There is absolutely nothing that we can agree on but so far no one appears to be willing to riot in support of one position or another.
I think we can agree that this, at least, is progress.
Well, maybe not.
