Universal Permanent Calendar

This idea, for a permanent, fixed calendar (with occasional "Newton" one-week-long months thrown in to keep things in sync) has about as much chance of succeeding as the folks depicted in that West Wing episode who pointed out to CJ that not only is the current Mercator-style projection of world maps all wrong (it heavily favors the northern hemisphere, and dramatically shrinks the real relative size of Africa and other southern-hemisphere regions), but it ought to be shown upside-down.

I'm thinking the realistic cost of implementing this new calendar system would be, oh, more than the cost of the Y2K efforts (remember them?).

In case you're curious, here's the so-called C&T Calendar in all its glory.
