I don't think they're morons--I know many people have good reasons for wanting it to be light longer in the evening, even if I'd rather hold onto the morning sunshine.  (It was just getting to the point where it was light when I got to work.  So much for that.)  What gets me, though, is that until a few years ago my state didn't do daylight saving time, and...  Maybe it's just because I grew up with that arrangement, but I always thought that was the sensible way to do things.  Changing clocks just throws me way out of whack, every year, both times. 

This. The morning is dark again. Lots of saving there.
And when I was little, we didn't do that either.

I think it is stupid to go for the 'it is light longer' because, yeah, that's spring, it is starting to be longer light anyway.
It is only a few weeks, where that effect is really noticeable and for that all the trouble.
Recently I've read that some doctors made a study that the winter (normal) time is much healthier.
Which I believe at once.


'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation. That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance. You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long. All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.' Terry Pratchett 'Lords and Ladies'
