Daylight savings time

On the one hand, my other half loves the light later in the evenings.  It gives kids more time outside after school (if their parents let them play outside in the first place).  It gives people with daytime work schedules more light after work to get more things done outside.

But...there's a thing attributed to an old Indian who was told about DST: "Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot of the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket." 

It's stupid.  It would be just as easy for everyone to adjust their schedules back by an hour as it would be to adjust their clocks forward.
