Opening Arguments

Does anybody know what time it is?

Here's the deal: Daylight-saving time is now a reality in Indiana. You can skip the "fall back" part in a couple of months, but be prepared, as difficult as it might be to think about, to "spring forward" by setting your clocks an hour ahead when the time comes. And forget about the time zone -- it isn't going to change. Except for a few counties close to the northwest Indiana Central zone, there isn't going to be a groundswell of public opinion for change, and that's all the federal Department of Transportation cares about.

But don't feel bad about being called rubes or hicks for not wanting to deal with the whole DST issue. The dirty little secret is that everybody else in the country also thinks any kind of change will be a pain.
