    Fred, I would imagine that for cities like Austin or Fort Worth or
    Dallas in Texas, Oklahoma City in Oklahoma, Wichita in Kansas, Omaha
    in Nebraska, Sioux Falls in South Dakota, they already have "noon" at
    11:30. Like Frank, I would be interested to hear why it would be
    "unacceptable" for you to live in those cities... ;-)
