Vagaries of DST

Love it or hate it, daylight savings time is back in the U.S. Personally, I prefer DST. Mike the Mad Biologist explains why I’m not alone in a little more detail:

Every time we go on or off Daylight Saving Time, like clockwork (forgive the pun), there is a flurry of articles defending or attacking Daylight Saving Time (‘DST’). Well, put me in the supporters of Daylight Saving Time camp–I HATE going off it. Living in Boston, I don’t actually know very many (any, really) people who like ‘leaping back.’ Why?

Well, it’s the longitude, baby.
