Yup, it's time again to Spring back to Daylight "Savings" Time.

Alright, I'll confess that I am a partisan on the issue. To me, it seems that the so-called "advantages" or either unsubstantiated, or not of that much value. Whereas the DISadvantages are much more profound. Large among them are the effective "jet lag" suffered by virtually everyone, and the ensuing accidents of all sorts. And there is the expense to the economy of changing all 3 quillion clocks and other devices that either keep time or depend on the time for operation. Just fer starters.

(Of course, there IS the benefit that it helps us set our calendars to anticipate St Patrick's Day. ;-) And on that, BTW, on SPD, everyone is Irish, not just straights. Yeah, I went there!!)

OK, Catters. Havatit!
