Daylight Saving Time starts this Sunday morning (3/14/10) – set your clock ahead.
The activists here at standardtime.com have a modest proposal to end daylight saving time that will reap large benefits in addition to ending the semi-annual changing of the clock.
It has not escaped our notice that in the United States, Eastern standard time is the same as Central daylight time and Mountain standard time is the same as Pacific Daylight Time. Thus, we propose that The Pacific and Central time zones remain on permanent daylight saving time, and that the Mountain and Eastern time zones remain on permanent standard time.
