|12:11 pm - Well, that'll fsck (thanks K) me up.|
The clock on the Minneapolis City Hall tower has stopped. At 12:08 p.m. it reads 2:48 or so (it's analog). I see the clock every time I glance out my window. So on top of getting to work late this morning, I now look out the window and think that it's time for me to be getting ready to go home.

My Dad worked at City Hall for years, and when I visited him one time, I encountered this little gnome of a man who would play the chimes that are up in that tower from a small keyboard, while sitting on that grand, dark staircase that is in the center of the building.
A very good memory for me. I wonder if he's still there?
There's no time like the present.
I think that if you have a clock in a public place you are honor bound to make sure it reads the correct time.

Many public officials would take pride in being right twice a day.
