TEMPUS CHRISTUS VINCIT

Nick added a really cool toy to our sidebar - introducing the CHRISTUS VINCIT CHRONOMETER! Most blogs have one clock, we have THREE - one tells Eastern Time (Nick's and my time zone), one tells Central Time (Jason's time zone), and the third is Rome Time, just in case some Vatican official needs to know what time it is, ha ha ha!

But then, I have this old (1971) George Carlin clip stuck in my head as he introduces the 11:00 News:
It's 8 o'clock in Los Angeles.
It's 9 o'clock in Denver.
It's 10 o'clock in Chicago.
IN BALTIMORE, IT'S SIX-FORTY-TWO!
Time for the 11 o'clock report!

Peace,
BMP

Brian,
Ya know, here at O'Hare, we have a 'Crisis Management Center' which has clocks displaying the time all over the world.
How come no one ever laughs when I say, "In Baltimore, it's 6:42!!"?

fyi, Rome's time zone is called "Central European Time" (CET).
