    Re: no leap second coming in December

    By the way, sitting in Paris to the end of this week, I had read Howses's
    "Greenwich time" in the evenings. I have returned it already, but I remember
    that in the chapter about UT1, UT2, ET, UTC and so on, the author gives very
    tiny values for the yearly slowing of the Earth' rotation (in the graphs,
    not in the text, where no values stand, if I remember it O.K.), absolutely
    incomparable with the amount of cca 0,7 sec per year, valid up to the 1995
    or so, according to your discussion.
    Is it the mistake of my memory or didn'n I understand the text well? (Red
    wine is my hobby here, this can be the cause of my being so dull.)
    Yours, Jan Kalivoda
