Ten minutes to write. Less time to read.


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.
