Screw that... I want DST twelve months of the year.

Same here, why is so much sunlight wasted before I wake up, at 12pm.

I do hate daylight savings time. But I lived in Arizona, where they don't have it, and it's the worst place I've ever seen, been, or heard of. So I guess what I'm saying is that maybe DST is actually preserving the rest of the country.

I heard Indiana doesn't have it, too? Indiana sucks, guys.

We don't? I thought we did!

The Dawning of DST in Indiana

Until April 2005, when Indiana passed a law agreeing to observe daylight saving time, the Hoosier state had its own unique and complex time system. Not only is the state split between two time zones, but until recently, only some parts of the state observed daylight saving time while the majority did not.

Under the old system, 77 of the state's 92 counties were in the Eastern Time Zone but did not change to daylight time in April. Instead they remained on standard time all year. That is, except for two counties near Cincinnati, Ohio, and Louisville, Ky., which did use daylight time.

But the counties in the northwest corner of the state (near Chicago) and the southwestern tip (near Evansville), which are in the Central Time Zone, used both standard and daylight time.

The battle between the old system and DST was contentious and hard-won—bills proposing DST had failed more than two dozen times until finally squeaking through the state legislature in April 2005. As of April 2, 2006, the entire state of Indiana joined 47 other states in observing Daylight Saving Time. But it wasn't quite as simple and straightforward as all that—telling time in Indiana remains something of a bewildering experience: eighteen counties now observed Central Daylight Time and the remaining 74 counties of Indiana observe Eastern Daylight Time.

I am glad cell phones keeps up with timezones, I'd never be able to drive through Indiana on 65 without it

I had no idea the sun could provide me with convenient transportation.

The sun indirectly powers your legs and it doesn't get more convenient then that.

Now with precision sport tuned suspension and better fuel economy than other sun chariots in its class.

Daylight savings time was obviously a dirty Commie conspiracy.
Chalkdust - 2009-08-17
why would writing your newspaper editor take precedent over writing your elected governmental official?
Toenails - 2009-08-17
Because it was a product of the the liberal media Zionist conspiracy.

"For church-going"....

I thought it would have something to do with one of those type of people.
Rum Revenge - 2009-08-17
Wait - the whole purpose of DST is to make more use of daylight hours. Follow the sun my ass!
Toenails - 2009-08-17
I could not believe such a stupid thing to get angry about exists until I actually watched the video.

This is why I make sure my clock does nothing but flash 12:00.

HAHA, indeed!

But falling back is the best part of DST! Let's fall back every year and just skip that whole waking up an hour earlier part in the spring.
cognitivedissonance - 2009-08-18
Nobody is going to stop you from going to church an hour earlier. In fact, you'd think they'd be thrilled about that. Or something.

I admit I don't know how church works.

It's hard to support someone's cause when they choose such catchy music to convey it with. This video doesn't make me want to write my congressman, it makes me want to cut a rug.
