The New York Stock Exchange
and its overlord the Intercontinental Exchange
have announced changes in the trading schedules for June 30 due to
the leap second.

Both messages show the conceptual failure that results from
Recommendation 460, that is a complete lack of concern for the
distinction between UTC and GMT.

The CCIR were wrong when they thought they could solve all problems
with a single time scale where nobody but the Time Lords would ever
have to worry about the difference.
