PZ raises an interesting point
Call me a barbarain if you must, but I feel compeled to mention that our Founding Fathers, those old dead white guys who founded This Great Land, didn't use time zones. Those weren't brought in until WWI, the brianchild of Woodrow Wilson, a Dimmocrat. And they didn't become federal law until LBJ, another Dimmocrat. So time zones are another Big Government Dimmocrat idea, something I'm sure liberal idiors will never admit!
PS -- shame about the media ganging up on poor Katharine Harris. Who says only man-senators should have big chests!?
