Here in the Big Apple, the city that never sleeps, where "sunrise" means
"when the Sun is first visible over the buildings" (:-)), milk-carton
timestamps are precise (not necessarily accurate) to one minute, but
the law takes account only of the day, and says that the milk may be
offered for sale until midnight (i.e. 2400) of the day specified.
The relevant time is of course New York LCT.

A rabbi whose congregation doesn't want         John Cowan
to drive him out of town isn't a rabbi,
and a rabbi who lets them do it       
isn't a man.    --Jewish saying
