We are the world, not

I hoped Obama would make fixing this a top priority.


This semi-annual clock switching gets more complicated and aggravating all the time, what with the profusion of clocks on all manner of appliances. When I was a kid 50 years ago we had maybe three clocks in our entire three-bedroom house; now I have about a dozen in my tiny one-bedroom apartment (some of which, such as the one in my VCR, are rather cumbersome to adjust).

Maybe DST is still worth the trouble in southern states where there is not much variation in the amount of daylight, but here in the north, where summer days are naturally much longer than winter ones, I've always thought it was kind of pointless.
