I have a little poem for everyone (courtesy of Steve Harris):

I am a man who walks alone
And when I'm walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park

When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when it's dark.

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

I was thinking of starting a poll on DST, but it had four options.

1. Keep Standard Time all year
2. Keep DST all year.
3. Keep DST, but return to the dates to the Time Act of 1966 dates of the last Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October.
4. Keep it as is.

I'd go for selection 1.
Here above the 47th parallel, we we more than enough sun at both ends of the day regardless of the time scheme, and in the winter we get up in the dark and come home from work in the dark regardless. It makes a difference only in late fall and early spring.

I guess not enough people are morning persons. DST doesn't lengthen the day, it just has the sun come up later and set later. Wanna play golf? tee off an hour earlier Smile

I wake up a 5am every work day...so for me, later daylight is about as useful as balls on a priest! Big Grin

I'm an early riser, too, as I go running some time between 4:30 and 5am. I like running in the dark, getting home to make coffee, and watch the sunrise. I'd much rather have the extra light in the evening than in the morning.

I too am up at 5 each day just because I don’t sleep much. This is the very reason I much prefer a later sunset.

Though I imagine the later sunset is nicer in Santa Fe than in Dallas. I only say that because in the summer, night time is the only escape from the heat here in Florida. While its still sticky and humid, 78 is better than 95.
