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.

That's bad.

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.

Cheap shot

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