Daylight Savings Time (DST) went into effect three nights ago, and I’m still confused about what time to get up in the morning. No, I’m not a morning person. Yes, I could set an alarm. And, yes again, this isn’t a problem on the par of world hunger or Ebola.
Still, I went to the Internet to see if anyone had written about DST lately, either for or against it. Google® took only a quarter of a second to give me 29,100,000 results. I started with Number One, which was an opinion piece by Matt Shiavenza for The Atlantic titled “Time to Kill Daylight Saving.” I thought he made a clear, readable argument for doing away with the 1918 law establishing it. It was relatively brief too.
I never checked on the second Google® reference, because following Shiavenza’s article were 718 comments about it. Many said the article was poorly written; others thought it lacked research; still others commented on previous comments until some of the remarks turned snide. And one person bragged he hadn’t read the article at all; he was just along for the debate.
As for me, there isn’t any reason to expound further on DST since it’s all been said and Google® has preserved it.
