Go Ahead and Light Up the Town

So I hear Congress has gone ahead and voted to extend Daylight Savings Time.

I haven't really thought about it too much. I don't really know how much it will affect me.

I don't think the intent is so horrible; saving energy. I'm just not so sure how much energy will be saved if we have extra darkness in the mornings . . .

I was reading this article about some parents' concern over the change. They're worried about various things like their children waiting for the bus in the dark or having their sleep schedules thrown out of whack.

And then there's Mary Beth Truman, whose biggest concern is televison. "'I don't know, it always creeps me out if it's dark and Oprah's on,' she said."

Oprah scares me when it's light!
