There are several counties that have set their own clocks according to local law. These counties will now have to conform with the rest....
I want to see those laws enforced,

The first I heard of the Indiana time zones was on an episode of The West Wing
. In that episode, some of the People Who Matter (PWMs) slumming around Indiana wound up missing an flight because they got confused on the time zones. They spent a good five minutes marvelling about how all those hicks out in bumble_ _ _ _ were so backward they were setting their clocks on a different schedule than Washington DC, where all the PWMs live. All of this was done completely without irony. It simply never occured to the writers that local control of Daylight Savings Time might not be a completely backward idea.
I gotta tell you, anything that causes that much ire to the writers of The West Wing is a good thing in my book!
