How thoroughly stupid. Nevertheless, when I talked to the teleconference
organizer, it became thoroughly clear that for him "GMT" meant "the time
on my wristwatch or wall clock", and that he had no idea that anyone had
any other meaning for the abbreviation.

O beautiful for patriot's dream that sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears!
America! America!  God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control, thy liberty in law!
