    And give up an hour of after work sailing or tennis games?  Heresy.
    In Indiana, the best is yet to come.  A provision of passing the DST bill
    (after "Our Man Mitch" twisted a few political arms to turn the initial vote
    around from a loss to a win) is a federal ruling on what time zone Indiana
    will be in.  Worst case scenario, IMHO, is Indiana will revert to Central.
    A lot of lobbying for remaining Eastern.  Possible outcome, a
    vertically-oriented state being split somewhere near the middle.
    That should make it a true joy for pleasure craft and freighters passing
    through the Michigan/Indiana/Illinois waters on Lake Michigan, as well as
    barge traffic on the Ohio River.
    There seems to be a lot of wisdom in the old saw, "Throw the rascals out."
