The Slice

The votes are in

And a clear majority of those I heard from gave a thumbs-down to Daylight Saving Time.

Of course, I'm not kidding myself. I realize that probably isn't representative of the prevailing attitudes out there. For one thing, people are more apt to speak up when they don't like something. And then there's the fact that at least some of my readers are aware that I am no fan of the switch to DST.

Still, I have to admit I enjoyed hearing others wonder why we couldn't tinker with our schedules instead of with the clock.

Colville's Ellen Hodde summed it up for those of us who regard the time-change as unnecessary: “This is crazy.”
