Stupid Daylight Savings

I hate Daylight Savings. I think it's one of the worst ideas ever. And every year my hatred of it is backed up by news articles like this one that cite the increase in heart attacks and negative job production the week after the changeover.

That hatred was reinforced this morning when I woke up after a decent night sleep, rolled over, looked at my clock, saw that the alarm would go off shortly giving us just enough time to get up and go to church, and then suddenly was hit with the horrified realization that I hadn't set my clock forward last night. And so the charming hour we had to get ready had been rudely stolen from me and we should have been at church already.

Bah humbug.

I hate normal time. DST is excellent because we get an extra hour of sunshine after work. This is great for disc golf, bike riding, and other outdoor activities. So I think we should keep DST all year or my work should allow me to work from 7:00 to 3:30.
