I do follow local *standard* time, which is the local time for the west
105deg meridian. I live in Lafayette, Colorado, which is at 105deg.6'
west. Local time here is 24 seconds delayed from local time at the
central meridian of this zone, and about a minute later than the local
time for Denver. That is close enough for me.  I'm really not an
extremist ;-)
