(easier typing with a real keyboard)...

This is a local/states rights issue imho :)  AZ ignores DST and as a result
I never know what time it is there ;)

This is a local state-by-state and county-by-county issue as evidenced
by the behavior of counties in Indiana that are close to or within
the Chicago MSA.  This is more a social issue than anything else.

Many people prefer some daylight when they are not working.
