So, I was playing around a little in Ruby and noticed that |DateTime|
is
a subclass of |Date|, yet the method |today| is not defined for it.

I can certainly see how it doesn’t make sense to have that method for
that class, but I’m wondering why a Date isn’t a DateTime? I suppose
then we’d be removing the time element, so we’d get the same problem…
but it was just striking is all.

Time.now gives date and time.
