I don't know what to do with all the daylight I've been saving

maybe I'll spend it down in the red light district.
I'd say the workers there are pretty upset with having lost an hour of darkness

The Dawning of DST in Indiana

Until April 2005, when Indiana passed a law agreeing to observe daylight saving time, the Hoosier state had its own unique and complex time system. Not only is the state split between two time zones, but until recently, only some parts of the state observed daylight saving time while the majority did not.

Under the old system, 77 of the state's 92 counties were in the Eastern Time Zone but did not change to daylight time in April. Instead they remained on standard time all year. That is, except for two counties near Cincinnati, Ohio, and Louisville, Ky., which did use daylight time.

But the counties in the northwest corner of the state (near Chicago) and the southwestern tip (near Evansville), which are in the Central Time Zone, used both standard and daylight time.

The battle between the old system and DST was contentious and hard-won—bills proposing DST had failed more than two dozen times in the past until it squeaked through the state legislature in April 2005. The old, familiar, bewildering system will remain in place for 2005; Indiana will join 47 other states in observing DST in April 2006.
So what the hell does this actually mean? Is Indiana still split?

you know what...I kinda remember hearing about that now. No one knows what time zone anyone in Indiana is on

People complain about Bush, but that's obviously because they don't know who Mitch Daniels is (governor of IN)

This guy Sold our toll road to some company in Australia.
He cut funding to schools
AND
Proposed this ingenious idea to solve our half the states on one time zone, half the states on the other: Let individual counties chose which side they want to be on.

Oh yeah....You're definently "My Man" Mitch



I apolgize btw for the way I sounded last night, I was extremely tired
