    Time change

    Every time the change between standard and daylight savings time comes up, I hear grumbling and muttering about it being time to give up on it.......But, as much as people like to complain, nobody's doing anything about it.

    There are legitimate reasons why it would be beneficial to stay on standard time. Statistics confirm that car accidents spike after the time change, and it creates no end of confusion when one part of a country switches, while others don't.

    The comment about cutting a foot off the top of a blanket and sewing it to the bottom to make it longer is an illustration of how nonsensical it is to keep doing the same thing over and over when there's no good reason to. It's time our leaders said enough is enough and put an end to this foolishness.

    I could do without it--the extra hour in the fall is nice, but still messes me up--the lost hour in the spring just plain sucks.

    I have a lot of trouble trying to regulate my sleep. The time change just makes it tougher.

    Referring back to the subject of accidents caused by overtired drivers when the time changes.......Has anybody else wondered if the time change might have been a contributing factor in that mid-air plane crash over Ottawa yesterday?

    It's dumb in my opinion.

    This is funny, because I actually did this when we changed times this year. My car clock's been an hour slow for months, and it's finally back to the right time.

    I heard today that California's got legislation in the works that will see the state switch permanently to Daylight Savings Time.

    I would be in favour of that if they did that here.

    I'd like to see BC stay fixed in time instead of the switching back and forth. But, I'd much prefer that we stay on standard time rather than be stuck on Daylight Savings time year-round.
