Indiana's time zone melee continues....

One other funny thing I just noticed about Dan Shaw's article
its time stamp says "PUBLISHED: 08-15-06 5:00 AM EST".  But
Lafayette is in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, which is observing
Eastern Daylight Time now, not "EST".

If the newspaper can't even get its own time stamps right, no
wonder mortals working for lesser institutions like the schools
have problems.  (Though it seems that the bars have the best-set
clocks right now....)

I'll CC: this article to Dan Shaw to let him know about the
problem with his newspaper's web site.  Perhaps he can forward it
to his website administrator.

Mr. Shaw, for your reference, this email is part of a discussion
on an international mailing list devoted to time zone and daylight
saving time issues.  The first article in the discussion is
archived at <>.
And, by the way, thanks for your article: it's rare to find issues
like these reported so well.
