Daylight Saving Time: The Rant

It has come to my attention that not everybody hates DST.  They should, but they don’t.  Some people like it.  Ken Jennings, f’rinstance:

The return of daylight saving time (not “savings”–it’s one of those often incorrectly pluralized things like “the book of Revelation” or “the Stanford Cardinal”) is always big cause for celebration around my house. Nobody gets up early enough to have to endure dead-of-night commutes, and everyone likes the longer, lighter evenings.

I would be the first to admit that Ken is entitled to his opinion. And although DST is an irrational, insane practice that makes no sense and only creates the illusion that humans have control over something—the rising and setting of the sun—that we in fact have no control over, I will not sink to the level of personal attacks by pointing out that people who like DST are bobo-headed doody faces. Because that would be wrong. Accurate, but wrong.
