Also, in the US this weekend is the end of daylight savings time. This has been something of a rant of mine, but the whole point of DST is "if you get up an hour earlier, you get more sunlight later in the day." Duh. What kind of federal rocket scientist came up with that after spending a few billion $ on research?
I am in favor of anyone *personally chosing* to wake up earlier and getting as much daylight as they want. But, don't force us night owls who don't care where the heck that bright shiny thing outdoors is to get up earlier. All the news reports are saying that the car accident rate goes *up* for a few days after each DST switchon/off, as people aren't used to it-- the entire country gets jetlagged. Once again, what kind of federal numbskull thought it'd be a good idea to increase accidents just so some could work on their evening tans?
If I ever run for office, abolishing DST will be one of my goals. Until then, I can just rant....
