Venezuela to adjust clocks by 30 mins

In an effort to socialize daylight away from the evil oppressors, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is going to turn everyone's clocks back 30 minutes in September. The "more fair distribution of the sunrise" should particularly help poor children (which isn't a very socialist concept).  The government plans to announce additional measures to "make more effective use of time". Perhaps that will involve abolishing the government and silly 30 minute time changes which will surely be easy to implement in every computer, cash register and ATM in the country.
