Ending Our Semi- Annual ClockCapade

Congress has been playing around with daylight savings time (DST) recently.
So, once again we are "springing ahead" earlier this year.
That's why you pushed your clock ahead one hour before you turned in on Saturday night.
And this is why you will turn it back again in the fall.
This 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.
This is what happens when you let the federal government mess around with the time.
I have a solution for this twice-a-year time madness: Let's set the clocks ahead (or behind) 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?
