In Indiana, where they are also opposed to Daylight Savings Time, they have developed an ingenious counter-argument. If you don't change the time, then you've got to change the time *zone*. In the winter months, they are in the same time zone as Chicago, and in the summer it is the same zone as New York.

So the cows know when to be milked, but they don't know where.
