Everything I Love: Daylight Savings Time

Say what you will about the United States Government, but perhaps we can all agree that it's done a good thing by extending daylight savings time this year. Fewer traffic fatalities, less energy consumption, and more light for little league games - there's something in the earlier time change to make everyone feel good. For me, there are few more pleasant surprises than, having become accustomed to leaving work in darkness, being startled one early spring evening when you head home in sunlight. So while you're turning your clock forward this weekend, take a moment to think about those poor people in Saskatchewan who will continue to toil on the dark prairies for as long as that province remains a lone holdout in its opposition to light and goodness in Canada.
