Happy "It Gets Dark At 6" Season!

Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend so as we do every year, we'll all be setting our clocks back one hour this Saturday night/early Sunday morning (well, most us will). Why, you wonder?

Because it's a symbolic, futile act of defiance against our impending mortality, the pretense that we can somehow exert a measure of control over the element of time and thus, our inevitable fate. The reality is that in spite of any of man's best efforts to the contrary, time marches ever forward, carrying us with it to the grave.

Or because Benjamin Franklin invented it for farmers.
