    How did AC ruin the south? I've not heard that before.

    nobody sits on their front porch or stands out at the fence chatting anymore because it's too damn hot to sit inside.

    Exactly, the heat created a more social, slower pace of life.

    I kinda like the AC more than I like the "funeral home fans" that they used to hand out on Sunday mornings at church. I do remember slow days in the summer where we all sat on the front porch or under a shade tree and just watched time pass by. Kinda miss those days.

    Personally, I think we should add two hours to every day and take out February to compensate.

    Not a bad idea. I had a dissimlar idea, however. Add a thirteenth month. Twelve months would have 28 days -- exactly four weeks. December would have 29 and you'd still have a February 29th every four years. It would really help accounting, payroll, etc....

    My dad's neighbors (when he was growing up) said they used to love to listen to my dad's family's dinner conversations thru their open window.

    Teachers used to punish us by turning off the fans and closing the windows.

    I admit to being spoiled, but I won't live without a/c. I can't stand the heat/humidity.

    Oh, and if you lived in Arizona, you wouldn't be so anxious for that extra hour of daylight. I remember the weight that was lifted from my shoulders when the sun went down out there. Gorgeous sunsets, and a sigh of relief. Sitting out under the stars was MUCH more pleasurable then sitting out in the evening.

    There are 2 ways to look at it:

    1: Allegedly, no one sits outside on their porch, sipping lemonade or sweet tea, and chatting with the neighbors.

    or

    2: It made it bearable for yankee transplants to start migrating en masse to dixie as coporations sought to grow marketshare and locate operations in the southeast. More yankees = bad by traditional southerners.

    (I'd make the case that it's a push as to whether A/C or television was the single biggest technological advance that gave the necessary traction to the civil rights movement to usher in some much needed social change in this part of the world. If A/C thus "ruined" the South, I'd argue that it was a ruining that was long overdue...)

    MLK made the prediction that the first beneficiaries of desegration would be white southerners.
