The courtesy of kings

The trouble with being punctual is that nobody’s there to appreciate it.
– Franklin P. Jones

I’m a big fan of the concept of Lombardi time. If something starts at 8pm, then be there at least 10 minutes before and don’t arrive at 8pm – this is not the cinema where you have at least 20 minutes of preamble.

I want to start a new trend: where being fashionably late is no longer fashionable. Why this particular ‘fashion’ has persisted for so long is a mystery to me. I think that people should strive to be politely prompt instead. Surely things will run so much more smoothly that way.
