Bolivia Rages Against The Machine, Flips Clock

LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) - Bolivia's leftist government is turning back the clock. Or turning it backwards, at least.

The government this week flipped the clock atop the Congress building so that while it's still accurate, the hands now turn to the left, a direction known elsewhere as counterclockwise.

Officials say the move is an expression of de-colonization in a country with a long-suppressed indigenous majority. President Evo Morales became its first indigenous president when he took office in 2006.

One lawmaker in opposition called it an attempt to "change the universal laws of time."
