I want a name

Can somebody give me the name of the idiot who determined that moving up daylight saving time was a good idea? I don't like waking up before dawn. It throws my whole day off. This morning was the worst. I felt like a grouchy old bear.

My posting has dried up too. I came home from work on Monday and Tuesday tired, too tired to post. I could not find the energy to write. Heck, I could not even find the energy to log on the Christian Counter Strike server and kill a few Christian kids in a rousing gun game - and I love killing the kiddies. It is so much better than drinking a beer and watching the TV.

Give me a name... I need to write a nasty email. I might even use profanity.

I think it was probably either James Dobson, Pat Robertson, or Jerry Falwell. Better write to all three just to be safe.

I couldn't agree more. You wanna change the time? Make it year round.

The Daylight 'Savings' Canard

I'm just turning on my lights earlier in the morning than earlier in the evening, so I don't see how this saves energy at all. They're all morons in D.C. If they aren't creating new problems they're finding pointless and annoying non-solutions to old ones.

"I don't really care how time is reckoned so long as there is some agreement about it, but I object to being told that I am saving daylight when my reason tells me that I am doing nothing of the kind. I even object to the implication that I am wasting something valuable if I stay in bed after the sun has risen. As an admirer of moonlight I resent the bossy insistence of those who want to reduce my time for enjoying it. At the back of the Daylight Saving scheme I detect the bony, blue-fingered hand of Puritanism, eager to push people into bed earlier, and get them up earlier, to make them healthy, wealthy and wise in spite of themselves." (Robertson Davies, The Diary of Samuel Marchbanks, 1947, XIX, Sunday.)
