Clock Capers

Congress has been playing around with daylight savings time (DST) recently. So, once again we will be "springing ahead" earlier this year. This means you have to push your clock ahead one hour before you turn in on Saturday night.
It also means you have to reset all of those pesky digital clocks on various devices all over your house. And, you lose an hour of sleep. Hey, I love DST and wish we could have it all year round - which makes this ritual even more of a nuisance.
I have a solution for this twice-a-year time madness: On Saturday we should set the clocks ahead one-half-hour and leave them there. It's a permanent compromise. In the fall, leave the clocks where they are. Next spring, no change. That oughta do it, right?
