Saturday soapbox

Saturday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse but not to abuse.

I object to being told that I am saving daylight when my reason tells me that I am doing nothing of the kind…At the back of the Daylight Saving scheme I detect the bony blue-fingered had of Puritanism, eager to push people into bed earlier, and get up earlier to make them healthy, wealthy and wise in spite of themselves. – Robertson Davies
