We do have daylight savings time & standard time scattered helter skelter 
across the state of Indiana and adjacent states, which is a bit of a nuisance 
when we are located in a region with employees coming from communities that 
do have it and don't have it.

This can be a political football in the State of Indiana from the perspective 
of the degree to which local communities will accept central authority 
meddling in their ability to make decisions on esoteric topics.

I communicate with folks in the east who are on Eastern Standard Time
& with other folks who are on Eastern Daylight Savings Time.

They have the same mess in the East as we have with Central Time ... helter 
skelter some communities using it, some not.

I wonder if this is confusing to our business partners in other countries.
Do they have similar complications tacked on to the standard time zones?

In business terms I do not see what difference it makes that we communicate 
with people who are on Pacific Time, or European Times ... the only 
difference is in the means of communication that work when there is little or 
no overlap between our regular hours of staffed open for business.
