In the essence of time

This subtle malaphor is a mix of “in the interest of saving time” (in order to save time) and “time is of the essence” (meeting the deadlines is essential).  Could have been spoken by a dyslexic lawyer.  Thanks to Lin Sewell for sending this one in.

    Before today, it was time was of the essence, not to be breached with the unimportant. From this day forward, the essence of time is of prime importance.
