My Argument For DOUBLE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME!
I am totally opposed to the return to Standard Time. It is absolutely illogical to regress the clocks 1 hour in the fall just as daylight is diminishing. Rather,at this time,we should be advancing them an hour for what I term Double Daylight Savings Time. Or, at the very least,we should have year-round Daylight Savings Time as is the case in Arizona,Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. In addition to a 1-2% savings in energy consumption, this added light would allow more individuals to return home at night before darkness sets in, thereby reducing accidents and crimes.
