Daylight Saving Time Public Service Announcement

    It starts this Sunday March 11, three weeks earlier than previous years and will go one week later until the first Sunday of November (except in parts of Indiana, I guess).

    I love DST.

    DST rocks.

    Nothing like throwing your clubs in the back of your truck at 6:30 pm, getting in 9, and listening to the Royals on the way home. [insert joke here]

    Hey, quit stealing my shtick! ;D

    I looooooves me some DST.

    Love it, love it, love it, love it.

    Wish it were year-round.

    Hell, they should make it year-round. Or better yet, eliminate time zones and put everyone on Eastern.

    (BTW, I understand all Hoosiers are now on it, leaving Arizona and Hawaii as the last holdouts.)

    DST may rock, but losing an hour of sleep Saturday won't.

    Yes...that's exactly what we need. The news on at 11 p.m. instead of a much more civilized hour, like 10 p.m. And Monday Night Football games which end by the time most of our newspapers are being sent to the press.

    Uh, I mean, yes! Great idea!

    Hey, it means another hour of daylight to go outside after work and ride the bike. Yay!

    The NFL can move kickoff times back if they want any coverage (not that anyone's watching or caring.)

    If they dont .... meh .... one less item to hold for.

    But the idea is, the whole country is on one time. It doesn't have to be Eastern, it might be better to make it Central, or maybe halfway between Central and Mountain to split the difference. Hey, a half-hour difference works in Newfoundland.

    So you guys moved yours when we moved ours? I think it's weird starting it early.

    Yup. Didn't have much of a choice.

    I think there was some compromise involved. If I remember correctly it was originally set for the first Sunday in March.

    I love it.

    I love DST and agree, just make it year-round.

    But with the early start, we technically say "Spring Forward" because the move still is in winter.
