What good is it? Is that 1% of energy that we are supposed to be saving worth all of the car accidents and heart attacks?
Not only does Daylight Saving Time make me feel like I'm starting my day off with a knife strike to the head, I have to get my son up and get him to school on time as well, which is like being tortured with an air horn.
Whose brilliant idea was this anyway?

I second that. I get off work at 2:00am, which magically becomes 3:00am at that instant. It is loads of fun having your sleep shifted when you have exactly one 24hr period off for a weekend. And does it even save any energy? I thought that was negligible.
