But it will always be 1959

Venezuela, caught in a time warp (where darkness is the rule);
Venezuela is going to review its time zone, which has been out of kilter with the rest of North and South America since the late President Hugo Chavez changed it by half an hour in 2007.
...."It's getting dark very early," [El Presidente Nicolas] Maduro said during the inauguration of a government-built housing complex. "I've asked the vice president to review the issue of the time zone."
Noting that it was 6:00 p.m. and already dark, Maduro said the country should be in a time zone that puts sunset between 6:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Which will restore milk, bread and cooking oil to the supermarket shelves, we're sure. Then Maduro can have more shoppers arrested.
