Time follies

Extending daylight savings time is a bad, bad idea. The cows don't like it. We're on the wrong edge of the Central zone here, so that the heat of the day lasts more than it does on the eastern edge. This means that those with air-conditioning are not abed and are cooling themselves for more hours than they otherwise would. All press mention of darkness in the morning has touched on schoolkids, but morning darkness is bad for all those walking or waiting for the bus, not just kids. Who comes up with these ideas? Probably the same people who think that Social Security retirement age should be postponed, the same people who know nothing about jobs that make heavy physical demands on people.
