Do you have the time?

The simple question of “what time is it?” can become a major issue at times.

As we recently changed our clocks, the history of this now annual ritual was remembered by the Wall Street Journal.

The controversy over Daylight Savings Time goes back a long way. It is interesting to see how the idea of changing the time was sold and how it was opposed.

There was even a fight once here in Nashville with the afternoon paper, The Nashville Banner, saying standard time is God’s time.

The morning paper, The Tennessean, was OK with daylight time and said it doubted God really cared about what time it is.

So divided they were, for a while. The papers kept separate clocks, an hour apart, in the joint lobby they shared.
