It's spring forward, not back

TORONTO (AP) - March 10, 2014

But this time, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's chief of staff is taking the heat for the latest thing to make the mayor an international laughingstock.

In a tweet that went out under his name, Ford he reminded people to set their clocks back an hour before turning in Saturday night.

Trouble is, as just about every schoolkid knows, the rule is "spring forward, fall back," meaning clocks should have been set forward an hour.

The problem led one sports writer to mock Ford as "the mayor who won't even follow the dimensional rules of time."
