I think in terms of display (this is a theme issue I think) it would  
be best to follow Jesse's suggestion:  display both "blog" time (or  
the reader's time if known), AND the author's time.  If you order by  
server time but display just the author's time, your readers will be  
saying "Why are these out of order??"
