Extending Daylight-Saving Time


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


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.

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.
