Time


I know that all of you are going to get up at 2 a.m. tomorrow morning to set your clocks one hour forward. I know that I am. I like Daylight Saving Time (there is no s on the end of saving.) In fact I like it so much I wish that we were on Daylight Saving Time all year. When I was in Phoenix recently my friends down there were talking about how regressive the residents are down there. Might have something to do with the excessive heat. To make their point they told me that they have a memorial in Arizona to the person who fought to not have Daylight Saving Time in Arizona. As if that idiot was some sort of hero. As if that person had some special wisdom that caused an entire state to be out of step with the rest of the nation. I thought it was the United States and not the United States minus one. It is not an honor to be disruptive and contrary. Imagine if all of the states acted the way Arizona has with Daylight Saving Time. What a mess. Total chaos.
