Should Daylight Savings Time be 365 days a year?
A mighty wave is sweeping the U.S.
Next Sunday at 2AM, Daylight Savings Time will end. We will "fall back" an hour to 1AM.
Rise up, people!
Americans love their Daylight Savings Time and I say, it's time to make it permanent. Daylight Savings Time saves energy. It's healthier - there's a documented 25% increase in heart attacks in the days following the changing of clocks in the spring, due to the disruption of sleep.(and IMO - changing all the clocks on your microwaves and VCRs)
Here's an op/ed piece about Daylight Savings Time, from Scott C.Yates, on CNN.com with the reasoning.
And here's a petition on change.org to enact permanent Daylight Savings Time.
