Kingston shows up to work late, becaWAIT A SEC HOW IS 8:09 A.M. LATE?

The median worker in Kingston shows up to work at 8:09 a.m. (and that is apparently late, relatively, what?), according to a report by Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com.

The median in the U.S. is 7:55 am., Silver reports using Census data, adding that New York City's median is the worst/best in the country at 8:24 a.m., bunch of good-for-nothing lazy pants.

For the record, I come to work at around 8:30 a.m. (-ish  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ), which is actually more than 8 hours later that I used to when I was a copy editor some 10 years ago, so cut me some slack over here.

This horrible hour of showing up to work with funky hair, questionable wardrobe, red eyes and despair, I should note, is remarkably later than that of the Freeman's managing editor, Tony Adamis, who works crazy hours and crazy times because he's ... a hard worker, yes sir.

So, what time do you show up to work? And why are you responding to this while at work?
