Baltimore, Maryland (IPP) - The U.S. Naval observatory has announced big changes to this year's Daylight Savings Time Change on November 2, 2008. The hour from 11:00 PM until 12:00 AM is being totally eliminated.

Dr. Povenmire Finootch held a press conference after stepping off of the Gulfstream VIII jet that had just brought him across the country from the west coast. Dr. Finootch is the president of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) which has recently been assigned the task of taking control of the US Naval Observatory (USNO).

The first change introduced by the IAU to the USNO was the removal of the 11 PM to 12 AM hour in order to save energy.

More changes are planned and Dr. Finootch will have all of the pertinent information available on the internet within 24 hours (soon to be 23 hours).

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
