Daylight Savings Time

So... is Daylight Savings time really worth it? The inconvience of changing your body schedule an hour, twice a year isn't that much, in fact, to anyone used to rotating shifts (Read: most EMS, Fire, and Law Enforcement folks) it really isn't anything at all.

But why do we do it? I don't care if the sun comes out at 7:30 or 8:30... I've got to start work at 0600... so it is going to be dark when I get to work - all the time.

Then there is the inconvience of having to change all your clocks. And we have clocks on everything - Phones, radios, microwaves, DVD/VCR's, computers.

Then the government goes and changes the program... and screws up the time on any electrical device that is programmed to automatically change the time.
