The Trickle - Daylight Savings
November 27, 2009 - Brian Ferry
I'm not a farmer. I don't have to worry about my kids walking long distances to school. I'm a guy who likes to see daylight when he gets home from work. Don't get me wrong, I've worked second shift. I didn't care where the sun was at what time back in those days. But now, as a first shifter, I don't want to have to turn on my headlights when I'm driving home from work. So, I have this idea. Let's break away from the rest of the country and go with Daylight Savings Time all the time. Franklin had a good idea. Let's honor him by expanding Daylight time to full-year status. This dark at 4:30 p.m. stuff is a bunch of hooie. (I didn't spell-check hooie, I don't care.) Who's with me? (I'm envisioning an angry mob with pitchforks and torches. Or, perhaps a swarm of legislators at my back nodding sagely as I use reason to cause the downfall of a bad tradition. It doesn't matter to me whether it's reason or emotion that gets this done, as long as it happens.)
