The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Makes just as much sense to me

In case you hadn't noticed, I am not a fan of Daylight Saving Time, nor am I alone in my disdain for it.

Still, this seems to be the definitive word on the topic:

My wife's grandfather (an Illinois farmer) once wrote me a letter suggesting, if setting our clocks forward in the summer is a good idea, then a better idea would be to set our thermometers higher in the winter. That way we'd have fewer days of freezing temperatures.

Hey, we're already turning up the thermostats, so this wouldn't be much of a change, would it?

The truth about daylight-saving time is actually rather sinister.

Well, this fat boy isn't shutting down the A/C during the summer in order to cut down on cold days.
I'll just have to plant a tree or something.
