So it looks like Indiana has finally decided to adopt Daylight Saving Time (DST) like most of the rest of the country, and hopefully reform its muddled mess of timezones at the same time. (Some counties in Indiana change their clocks in violation of state law). I’m sure Marty is pleased.
I think it is a little odd that the legislators that voted to go with the rest of the country are written about as genuine “heroes” in some newspapers. But I do think it’s good that Indiana is doing what everyone else is.
Now I hear talk of extending DST for a total of two more months. That is, more of the year will be spent on DST instead of Standard Time. That’s silly. Why don’t we all just move our schedules for everything one hour earlier and be done with the time changing, forever?
That would please my great-grandfather. He always kept at least one clock in his house on standard time, because “this is God’s time.” I haven’t ever quite figured out why Central Standard Time was the divinely favored time zone.
