Time Warp

It's time for my twice yearly rant against the time change.

Standard Time returns at 2 AM Sunday. 

Most of you get an extra hour of sleep.  I get an extra hour of work.  No complaints.  It evens out in the spring.  It actually works out better in the long run.  When you are on overnights, you look forward to those early sunrises and early sunsets.  Light in the evening is the enemy.

Every study ever done shows Daylight Saving Time doesn't save energy.  It's not worth the disruption, and losing that hour of sleep in the spring really throws people out of whack.

Several state legislatures have considered staying on Standard Time all year round.  Lots of talk.  No action.

Do you think it's time?
