I officially hate it. Hate it. Did I mention that I hate it? Throws my whole damn day off -- and for what reason? Hell if I know. All I do know are some states and some counties w/in states don't participate. So I think we should start a Gulf Coast movement to depart from the time change.We need time after work to see some day light, sit on the porch sipping a beverage of choice.
We recently elected us a new mayor who will have more power than our old time (and good ol' boy) symbolic mayor. I think he might be up for the challenge. Wouldn't the tourism industry benefit? I know the locals would benefit (esp. this slightly daft one). Consider all the people with Seasonal Affective Disorder - it would have to help them. I know this happened two weeks ago, but I was giving my self time to adjust - I haven't. I've just gotten more irritated every evening going home in the damn dark.
I say we take back our precious winter daylight and we do it now. Bring on the torches and the pitchforks.
End of Rant (for now...).
