Why in the world are we in the same time zone as NY, Boston, Miami, and DC, rather than Chicago?
I live in Terre Haute, right on the boarder and 1/3 of my staff and my customes live in Illinois. It's going to make a lot of work for me.
I will be ticked if they make us change to Chicago time. We are just as economically tied to Cincinnati and New York as we are Chicago--even more so in my case. I don't want it to be daylight at 4:00 am and dark at 4:00 pm when the kids walk home from school. It's next to impossible to get anything done outside in the evening after work. When I was a kid we could play outside until late in the evening. If it gets dark even earlier, the kids will have even less outside time. It's no wonder they are all couch potatoes. They can't play out after dark.
