I'm using postgresql, and I want to set the default value of a timestamp 
column to the current time. If I was writing pure PSQL with a CREATE TABLE 
I'd do something like column_name TIMESTAMP DEFAULT clock_timestamp(). Is 
there a way I can create a table like this without having to write too much 
raw SQL?

I've tried:

create_table :my_table do
  DateTime :my_timestamp, default: "clock_timestamp"

but it fails with PG::InvalidDatetimeFormat: ERROR:  invalid input syntax 
for type timestamp: "clock_timestamp()"
