    Zero hour...
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2009 Apr 14, 22:19 -0700

    After being so very late to the meridian around February 10, the Sun is 
    finally catching up. And so the Equation of Time goes to zero today. Because 
    we are close to a zero in the EqT, I may be a little busy in the next 24 
    hours and unable to post NavList messages. Hence I'm trying to get in a few 
    tonight... 
    
    You see, I celebrate ZEqT, this moment when the Apparent Sun catches up with 
    the Mean Sun, by calculating my expenses for the year, deducting them from my 
    revenues, and then transferring a certain fraction of the remainder, if any, 
    to the federal government of the United States and a smaller, token amount to 
    the state government of Illinois. :->

    PS: for those outside the USA, in case it's not obvious, this is a little joke 
    about the annual due date for tax filings here. It is ALSO a zero in the 
    Equation of Time.
