The "John Marshall" I am speaking of is THIS John Marshall:


Be careful here.  If you are a strictly Shabbat observing Jew and
faithfully observe Shabbat every seventh day, starting from Israel
and slowly travel westward going all the way around the globe and
end your trip back where you started you will be observing Shabbat
one day later than everybody else.  If you go eastward, you will
be observing Shabbat one day earlier than everybody else.  If it
wasn't for that line in the Pacific we would have a LOT of problems.
It does make for some problems as you cross it because you sometimes
have to change what day it is.  If you cross it a lot you begin
to use GMT time ALL the time instead (called Zulu time by some).

The time to close the voting is 1 Dec. 2006, 12:00 GMT (noon).  That
will be 1 Dec. 2006, 07:00 AM at Carnegie Mellon.

I am sitting here and being very "judicious" about looking VERY
carefully at all of the submissions. That means this court IS in
session and since I am judging all of the submissions that makes
me a sitting judge in the performance of his duties.  That means
that this decision can now be cited as a precedent.  Unfortunately,
I am not the Chief Judge, nor do I know if I am in the minority.
If I am in the minority, consider this a dissenting opinion.
