I think it should be left one way or the other...it doesn't matter which!
Aw heck, I just go with the flow !
I've always said we should split the difference on the half hour and just leave it there permanently!!!!!
well I hate the switch pick a time and stick with it
I have a different point of view. I need the sunlight to wake up in the morning and right now it is still dark at 7am. I have been looking forward to the time change so I don't have to force myself to get up before sunrise. I have an easier time dealing with an earlier sunset.
I agree with "SunnyArizon". I live in Indiana and I liked it when we didn't observe DST.
Benjamin Franklin had one bad idea in his life, and this is it. He was a city dweller all his life, and never lived with plants and animals on a daily basis. This abomination disturbs our bodies, and surely has a weakening effect on our immune systems.
Hey , I live in Arizona!!!!!! I think it is the only state left that does NOT do the DST thing.
If they ever try to change it, I will Fight it HOOK, LINE AND SINKER!!!!!
I wish they would just leave the clock alone and not have DST at all. Better yet, it would be nice if we were able to really respond to what our bodies are trying to tell us - like going to sleep when we are tired and getting up when we naturally wake up instead of running our lives by the clock! I know I'm dreaming, but it's a nice thought anyway. :-)
I live in Arizona where DST is not honored. I actually don't like DST, I feel like I adjust anturally anyways. I never liked DST when I lived in other states. They should compare stats with people in AZ too because they never have to deal with DST!
The article briefly mentions increased use of fuel and energy during DST. Wouldn't that extra energy use reflect the fact that we use more fuel in the winter because it's cold?
Wow. I never really gave the (one hour) difference much thought. I suppose it depends on your typical schedule and your physiological response to change. My daily schedule varies wildly as a general rule, so, if I blink, I (personally) might miss DST. : )
