Florida to the rescue!

PNJ article
"Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott and Rep. Vern Buchanan introduced the Sunshine Protection Act in Congress that would make daylight saving time permanent across the country."

I’d like to set the clock back about 60 years, and leave it there.

It's this weird thing we like to do twice a year in the rest of the U.S. We change all the clocks in our house and cars, and just for the fun of it we change them back again six months later to where they were before. Kinda keeps us on our toes.

You can’t do that.

I'm an early to bed early to rise kind of guy. It would be fine with me if we stayed on MST all year round like Arizona does.

I solved the problem 10 years ago when I retired. Its easy, I go to bed when I'm tired or there is nothing on cable that interests me. I wake up when my wife yells at me the 10th time to get up, I do. That often is around the crack of noon. Anyone expecting me before noonish is a fool. I have no idea what an hour does. I'm guessing no difference at all.

Cue the articles linking this weekend's lost hour of sleep to all sorts of carnage, plane crashes, car wrecks, divorce, industrial accidents, etc.

Seriously? We're to believe that one hour "lost" affects all us delicate flowers so intensely we can barely make it through the next few days without careening off a cliff?

If that's true, we should definitely ban all travel outside a person's home time zone.

Same here. I like to see the natural transitions of the sun as the year progresses. It somehow feels more natural than artificially moving clocks around. The daylight hours are few in the winter and many in the summer. Moving the local UTC offset doesn't change that. And I'm tired of the .gov telling us what "time" it is.

Since I no longer wear a watch, all devices that I own that tell time, automatically change themselves. I work nights, so it's dark when I go in and daylight when I go home. We could change the time back and forth every other weekend and it won't make a difference to me. I really couldn't care less one way or the other if they keep DST or not, but I bet by Tuesday most people will be over it.

One of the Chicago TV stations was spewing that nonsense a couple days ago, something about heart attacks increasing.

I thought we had gotten past that, but apparently not.

My girlfriend didn't reset her clock radio last night, since it has an automatic feature that handles the time changes for her. Unfortunately, she unwittingly disabled the function for some reason a while back, and ended up sleeping late.

Maybe we could go to double daylight time and get two extra hours of corn growing time every day.

I'm for Daily Savings Time.

Each day at 4pm, the clocks move forward an hour and everyone gets to go home early. Then at 4am, the clocks move back an hour and everyone gets an additional hour of sleep.
