Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time? Really?? We all have to change the time on our clocks to "save daylight"? That's the most inane thing anyone's ever thought up!

Hey, people commute too much. Let's redefine 1 kilometer to be 900 meters so that we can all keep doing what we've always done, yet pretend we are making a difference.

(Yes, it's an imperfect analogy.)

Twice each year we have to change our clocks, causing a week or so of increased accidents, heart attacks, and inconvenience. And for what? Maybe 50 years ago, it made a difference in electricity bills, but not any more.

Please, let's stop this madness. How I envy you, who live in areas that stay on Standard Time.
