Topic: "What Time Is It (2)"
Frodo is not a fan of time changing. There is, to Frodo, no credible scientific reason that justifies the biennial shift from Standard to Daylight Time and back again. The politicians who support these shifts in the continuum are the same politicians whom Frodo happens to feel were born brain-dead, and whose condition has worsened, as one might expect, over time.
Frodo is an extremist as it relates to matters of the clock. Frodo thinks that four o'clock in London should be four o'clock in Des Moines, Shanghai, Honolulu, Juneau, Berlin, and Krakow (Please note that the choice of 4 o'clock is coincidental and has no impact on the recognition of a world-wide "tea time"). What harm, would it do, pray tell, to have all the world on the same time? Just because the Sun may be at its' zenith in London at noon doesn't mean that people in New York couldn't learn that the same setting for them will now be 7 o'clock. Does it really matter? Wouldn't it be so much more convenient for travel to leave New York at Noon and to arrive in Barcelona ten hours later at 10 o'clock? Who would care if the workday in New York were to begin at 3 o'clock, if it ended at 11?
Frodo has lectured on this issue extensively, and has yet to receive any negative feedback. Mick, the Wonder Dog, recipient of most lectures on this topic, does not take note of the digital clock when he nods off about 9:30 each evening. He breathes deeply and wishes Frodo went to bed earlier.
Frodo notes that the gallant Braves would then actually play their inaugural game of the new season in Los Angeles at 1 o'clock, when games are supposed to start.
How will the gallant Braves do this season?
Frodo says, "Only time will tell."
