My last gig was as a Planning & Logistics guy, working very closely with FedEx.

The rumor—and I have no reason to doubt it—was that Fred Smith—founder and CEO of the behemoth company—was trying very hard to eliminate the Mountain Time Zone.

If successful, he’d have gained another hour in which to deliver his packages, effectively automatically lowering the claims rate for failure to deliver within their guaranteed time window.

So … joke about Daylight Savings Time if you want to, but … beware the wrath of Fred Smith ;-)

Whatever it all is, by the way, I REALLY slept in, this morning! Ahhhhhhhh!
