The arc of the moral universe bends towards chaos.
People who believe God or History are on their side provide the chaos.

I'll be sure to twist my garden sundial around slightly to make it read "correctly" after the end of March, but I won't do it at the designated time because the sun needs to be A) above the horizon, and B) visible enough to cast a shadow. It will happen sometime in April though, probably.

According to the National Conference of State Legislators, lawmakers in 32 states are considering bills that would change the current system of splitting the year into about eight months of daylight time and the rest, standard.

“It’s been a hot issue,” said Jim Reed, an NCSL official. And it’s getting hotter, he added. Every year more state lawmakers are considering changing the system. The preponderance are pushing for year-round daylight time, although Congress has forbidden states from doing so.

Well what the fuck is congress going to do if the preponderance just sez FUCK YOU!?

I'm putting my foot down!
