I’ve searched the archives and this is the closest thread I could find to answering my question: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=63917&highlight=midnight+noon
Also found only a single useful link from Google, to a Yahoo message board. While this was helpful, it wasn’t necessarily the most authoritive answer.
So could someone please answer the question, is midnight AM or PM? Same with noon.
My position is that they are both simply transitional times, with no valid AM or PM designation, along the same lines as zero is neither postivie nor negative.
