    it would be dumb for fla to be the only state on the east coast not doing it–esp. when all of us we be going down there to go to disneyworld and stuff over the summer–during daylight savings time…if anything we should stay on it all year…

    We should stay on it all year or on standard time all year, although there is something totally ‘not right’ about it being still daylight until nearly 9:00 PM around the solstice.

    Florida is a foreign country, so maybe it works for them.

    I wish Daylight Saving Time could just be eliminated altogether. It’s no longer necessary, and is just a bother to people to switch their clocks back and forth.

    Terrible bother. Usually takes me an exhausting 5 minutes.

    The yahoos down there are also debating an anti-evolution statement for their science standards. They almost make our yahoos look sane.

    The problem isn’t the 5 minutes it takes to switch the clocks, it’s the adjusting my schedule and that of my child to going to bed an hour earlier and getting up an hour later. That is a tremendous pain in the ass, and a completely unnecessary one.

    drjay,

    yes.

    this is a stupid mind game that Cheney came up with just to prove to a minion he is the Master of Space-Time ™.

    Absolutely get rid of it. I don’t have anything funny to back it up, but:

    Their finding: Having the entire state switch to daylight-saving time each year, rather than stay on standard time, costs Indiana households an additional $8.6 million in electricity bills. They conclude that the reduced cost of lighting in afternoons during daylight-saving time is more than offset by the higher air-conditioning costs on hot afternoons and increased heating costs on cool mornings.

    $8 million a year can buy a lot of acre-feet of the Tennessee
