Time Shift: Lighten the Workload Too

April 10, 2002

In much of Sunday's news there was no reason to even smile. However, "Why You're So Tired Today" (editorial, April 7) made me laugh out loud. I could visualize those dairy cows waiting an extra hour. . . . Thanks for a much-needed respite.

Why do we make the daylight saving time shifts at 2 a.m. on Sunday? It would be much nicer if the switches were made at 1 p.m. Monday. That way, when we set the clocks forward we would lose an hour of work. Furthermore, when we set the clocks back--turning 1 into noon--we would receive an extra hour of lunch. That plan seems much better to me.

Instead of moving our clocks forward one hour every spring and back an hour every fall, why not go with the law of averages? If we set our clocks to half an hour in between we could do away with all of this nonsense and never have to worry about springing forward or falling back ever again.
