I blame the government.

Stupid Daylight Savings Time...

The Sunday Smith isn't finished, but it's beddie-bye time for me.

Tomorrow morning, then.

We don't have that sillyness in Arizona. Mostly cause the heat melted off the buttons to adjust the clock.

I don't even know which parts of Indiana are in the Eastern Time Zone and which one are Central.

Anon, the answer is "almost all" and "a few," respectively. Some parts of the state kvetched at being out of sync with their neighbors across the state line. (Tam points out this makes their TV shows come on at the right times, too).

Indiana time has such a tortuous history, it has its own Wikipedia article.

I say we dispense with DST altogether as it makes me grumpy. I was finally adjusted to the new schedule and then- ka-blooey, my inner clock is all shot to hell. In an ideal world where I could sleep till the crack of noon daily, or eleven o'clock, it wouldn't matter so much.

I dunno.... Maybe they should set DST and make it permanent. It's the change back and forth that screws everyone up. JimB

Here's an idea: let's set the clocks so that Noon in each time zone corresponds to "Local Apparent Noon" (sun at its zenith) in the center of each time zone. The clocks say it's noon when it's noon. Done.

How hard would that be? If a business wishes to save money by shifting their business hours to match daylight, let them.
