Can't we just compromise and do 30 minutes and leave the MF'ing clocks alone !!!
We used to be a holdout here but they finally passed it by one vote in our state legislature.

We are on Daylight Saving Time all year long. DST is obsolete.

We're safe over here for another 3 weeks.

I've always considered DST to be utter stupidity. About the only ones whose work is connected to the sun are farmers, and they do things when they need doing, not when a clock tells them to.

If I was in charge (and you should all be very grateful that I'm not!), the US would be one time zone, 1:30 earlier than present Eastern Time. Businesses can adjust their working hours to whatever's best for their employees.

Ok, I'll bite, what's with this 30min deal. I thought a time zone was a full hour as there are 24 of them across this disk we live on.

BD thinks we should split the difference so to speak and change the time by half an hour and leave it there permanently.
