Forget about immigration policy, homeland security, UFOs and such. Let’s think about how our government considers and labels daylight saving time (also known as exception time). Don’t you think it is odd to call the other time standard time when in fact, standard time only lasts for three months versus nine months for daylight saving time (or exception time)? Only our government could come up with this sort of naming convention. That is, standard time inferring the norm by its’ name lasts one third of the duration of non-standard time.
