Daylight Savings Time

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME….A House committee approved an amendment today that would extend Daylight Savings Time, adding a month onto both the beginning and end. If passed, DST would start on the first Sunday in March and end on the last Sunday in November.

What a dilemma! I’m a firm fan of this idea ? although, unfortunately, I can’t pretend it’s for noble energy conserving reasons. I just like having more daylight at the end of the day and I don’t care much about it in the morning.

But here’s the thing: this has been proposed as an amendment to the Bush administration’s latest attempt at a major energy bill. I assume this bill is every bit as horrible as their last one, which failed last year, and that means I’m morally obligated to oppose it. Bummer.
