Saturday/ Daylight Saving Time: does not save Time, does not save Daylight

It’s that time of the year again in the United States, when we attempt to outsmart the universe.
We have to set our clocks back by one hour tonight.
Can we please pick one time and stick to it?

As David Policansky writes in The Washington Post:  “The people of Fairbanks, Alaska, show that it is possible to adjust to very early sunsets or very late sunrises. There just isn’t much advantage in shifting daylight around when you have only three hours and forty-two minutes of it on the shortest day. But in the Lower 48, in the mid-latitudes where most of us live, we complain”.

The Uniform Time Act of 1966 allows states not to observe Daylight Saving Time. That’s why residents of Arizona and Hawaii do not have to adjust their clocks twice every year. My vote for Washington State: Just Say No. Stop observing Daylight Saving Time.
