The seasons are confused. Where else would we the people lengthen the day, under something called Daylight Saving Time, when each day is already getting longer?
Similarly, we shorten days that are already on their way to being abbreviated.
And we play a lot with the presumed ending times. Well, I’m still here, as I assume most of you are, possibly to the disappointment of the Mayans, who told us the world was about to end a couple of weeks ago. Imagine the embarrassment of some who may have believed the end was to be the next day.
