Alas, amidst the continuing blather about the election, the simple but cheery news that we have finally escaped the man-made hell that is "Daylight Saving Time" may have escaped our notice. I suppose many might have missed it - if you get up late (i.e. after 6), you may not notice until you get to the end of the day and wonder why it seems to be getting dark so early.
But, what a joy to awaken this morning at the usual 5:30 and see at least a glimmer of daylight outside!
It's interesting that DST is one of several three-letter acronyms that have pestiferous and unhealthful effects on us. The others are DDT and DJT (I may think of more). Only one of these has been banned. The others ought to be.
If DJT had advocated abolishing DST, would I vote for him? Hmmm....I doubt it.
