Doc saw the time change:
Spooky. Went to a party last night. It ended at 2am. Got home, did a bit of catching up, and watched the computer's clock go from 2:59:59am to 2:00:00am. First time I've ever seen that happen. [The Doc Searls Weblog]

Seven years ago, the wife and I were hanging out in a room at Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz, waiting for the helicopter that would take her (and the soon-to-be-preemie twins) to Stanford. At 2:00 a.m., all the clocks stopped. Just stopped, and sat there saying 2:00:00 (OK, they were analog clocks. . .) for an hour. At which time they started running again. So I suppose that if anything had happened during that hour (birth, death, admission), it would have happened at 2:00 a.m. Yeh, spooky.

 "Things are more like they are now than they have ever been."
Curiously, this quotation attributed to Ford is much like what I remember to be a Quayleism: "Things are more different now than they have ever been before." Considering that I have searched for and failed to find the latter, it may be that the former is the correct quotation and attribution. Or perhaps both are apocryphal. Either one could be attributed believably to the current White House occupant.
