I'm always surprised to see people who like the idea of doing away with DST-- I definitely don't want sunrise coming at 3:30 am in the summer!
I'm one of those people who would prefer living on DST (NOT standard time) all year long. I could cope with a little darkness in the mornings in exchange for the longer days, and it would save the back-and-forth mess (Spring is the hardest for me).
But on the other hand, it helps the safety of schoolchildren (going to school in the dark is dangerous).
So I'm glad that our Standard Time window has gotten smaller in recent years. Now it's early November to early March-- we've lopped off about 6 weeks of it.
