When I was a little shaver growing up in a tiny little town, we not only got second rate movies at the one picture show in what passed for downtown ~ We got 20 year old "news reels" between the double B pictures.
I remember one, it was black/white, railing about how daylight savings time was some kind of government abomination and was gonna screw the farmers. Really. I was maybe 10 years old. I was already an avowed hater of DST, so this totally screwed with my young head.
Crap. I've forgotten what my point was. Cue Oblio.
Edit: Duh. My point was that I couldn't believe that there had been a time when not only was there no such thing as DST, but people were pissed that some lunatic had even proposed it. There. I feel better.
