Because otherwise how could it be made clear to readers that the words 
"today" and "yesterday" describe overlapping periods of time whilst the 
periods descirbed by "today" and "tomorrow" are mutually exclusive?

"It seems to be a constant throughout history: In every period, people 
believed things that were just ridiculous, and believed them so strongly 
that you would have gotten in terrible trouble for saying otherwise."
