Oh, the Irony . . .

Well all love it when the wisdom of the ancients trumps the foolish trappings of modern life. So when this e-mail began circulating at work earlier today, the guffaws and commentaries on the shrewd ancients were rampant:

Why Arizona does not have Daylight Saving Time:

The state of Arizona listened to the Wise Old Indian...
When told the reason for daylight saving time
the old Indian said,

"Only a white man would believe that you could cut
a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the
bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket."

That old Indian must not have been a Navajo, as the Navajo nation observes Daylight Saving Time while the rest of the state of Arizona does not.
