Saturday/ spring forward

The website is making the case for eliminating Daylight Savings Time altogether. From the website : ‘Stop “Spring Forward, Fall Back. Pick a Time, and Stick with It!’

We have sprung forward in time here in the USA last night at 2 am. My iPhone, iPad and computers are up to the task to recognize that, but I have a lot of clocks in the house that are still disconnected and oblivious to such arbitrary disconnections in time-keeping.  So I have to jump in and set their little hands (or digits) forward to reflect the correct time.  Daylight Savings Time is now active for such a long time (eight months, until Nov 3) that we might as well pick one time and stick with it.  That is the case that the web site is making.
