The Better Answer....

My answer:
The main purpose of Daylight Saving Time is to make better use of daylight. We change our clocks during the summer months to move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. Daylight Savings allows more activities in our clock driven lives, as it allows for more useful free time in the evening. It saves energy in the evenings and the morning. It makes life safer in the night early on, and the morning in the fall.  If you have environmental sensativities, daylight savings is a Godsend.  And it was first proposed by one of the greatest minds of the last 250 years... Benjamin Franklin.

We don't observe daylight savings time here and it kinda sucks.  It gets BRIGHT out at around 0430 or 0500 and that's just TOO bleepin early for this morning monster to get up.  Then, it's dark around 1800.  I thought daylight savings time was stupid until I moved somewhere that doesn't do it. :roll:
