I think the argument was that DST should stop in the fall because poor little kids would be going to school in the dark if DST was allowed to go year round. I'm with poly on this--let DST run year-round and get the little kids bright clothes for those dark mornings in January.<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

But damn, the bus shows up at the same time no matter that the sun isn't going to rise for another hour. That is why we can't have DST year round.<br><br>I do realize that time is a linear event until one speeds up to close to the speed of light.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)
yeah, i am nearly on lake michigan and i am in the same time zone that you're in over there in boston. it's impossible to get the kids to go to bed when the sun is shining at bed time later this summer. ah well.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
Ah, I can remember as a kid living in Indiana my father swearing at the governor. It seemed as if there were a few summers there when the sun went down at 10:30PM. Great for us kids playing outside after dinner but the parents had no peace.<br><br><br><br><br><br>(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)
I looked it up. I distinctly remembering my father standing on our front porch staring at the sun that was still not down and saying, "God[/i]damn Governor Whitcomb."<br>[i]<br>In 1969, the Indiana General Assembly passes legislation enacting the proposed model, pending congressional approval -- but Gov. Edgar Whitcomb vetoes it. Whitcomb says the bill would make Indiana's times conflict with those of surrounding states, but he is accused of siding with the television broadcast lobby (which wants program schedules to conform to those on the East Coast).<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)
Sheesh. I make a little joke about DST, and all the wussies come out to whine?<br><br>Me doesn't wike it. <br>No fair. I wanna go to bed. <br>No fair. I don't wanna go to bed. <br>Waaaaa. You get dark first! <br><br>All youse sissies make me sick! Now get out there in those fields and cut that wheat! <br><br> <br><br>Actually, DST goes back to Ben Franklin. I think originally it was fine for an agricultural society, and allowed better use of sunlight during the growing/harvesting seasons. And I guess in the 70's it was thought that it would help conserve energy. Yah, right. 10 zillion fools running their AC units an extra 2-3 hours a day. that's a BIG energy saver. <br><br>
