New calendar would keep holidays consistent

SAN FRANCISCO

An astrophysicist at Johns Hopkins University says he has a solution.

Richard Conn Henry is proposing a new, simpler calendar where each year is identical to the year before: Holidays and birthdays would fall on the same days of the week, making planning easier.

Adding an extra day February in a leap year would be dropped in favor of adding a leap week to December every five or six years.
