Extending Daylight-Saving Time

From http://www.cnn.com/2005/POLITICS/07/22/congress.daylighttime.ap/index.html:

"The beauty of daylight-saving time is that it just makes everyone feel sunnier," said [Rep. Edward] Markey.

Also:

According to some senators, farmers complained that a two-month extension could adversely affect livestock . . .

I wasn't aware that sheep and cattle cared about time zones, but they will just have to move their clocks back the same time the rest of us do.


Comments:
In the winter in the northern US and Canada, a thin layer of ice often forms on roads overnight and gets melted off by the morning sun -- send people to work an hour earlier, and you might see the accident rate climb a bit. Then again, the extra afternoon sunlight will be nice.
