Should All Of Indiana Observe Daylight Savings Time?

The debate rages on! This has been an issue off and on for a long time in Indiana. I found this short summary interesting with a good overall history. My favorite part:

Lacking enough votes, the city faction tries to filibuster until time runs out on the session at midnight, but rural champion Rep. Herbert Copeland, R?Madison, leans over the gallery railing and forces the official clock back to 9 p.m., breaking it in the process. The clock sticks on 9 as the debate rages on into the night. The filibuster finally dies out and the bill passes, while outside the chamber, clocks read 3:30 a.m.

Clearly Indiana should observe Daylight Savings Time, because Hoosiers become jet-lagged when they come to MIT and have to experience a time jump for the first time. :-)

Indiana has another hot issue: Should they rename Interstate 69?
