Daylight Three Card Monte

What is this nonsense about moving Daylight Savings Time around? We'll still get the same number of hours of daylight - that's never going to change - but now we'll be getting up in the DARK again. Who needs that? And how does it save energy? People have to turn on lights in the morning instead of the evening - same lights, same energy use. And they'll likely use more gas, as they head out in the evening to do some retail shopping.

For more grousing, see what she said.

And for yet more, see this interview with Michael Downing, author of Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time, which title pretty much sums it up.

i decided to take this opportunity to get up an hour earlier so i'd have more time in the morning. but i couldn't fall asleep at all and my plan just made me more sleepy. and i thoroughly did not enjoy waking up in the dark.
