Count on Daylight Saving Time

The scam known as "Daylight Saving Time" returns at 2 AM on Sunday, March 13th.

If we set our clocks AHEAD one hour on Saturday night, we are certain to wake up in the morning confused, hungry and either late or early for something.

The logic behind Daylight Saving Time is simple. Americans are stupid. If "they say" we will suddenly have an extra hour of daylight, we believe them! Especially when we have no idea who "they" are.

If we removed our hiking boots and placed them on top of our heads, would we believe we were taller? (Please say, "No!")

But if we cut out the hour between 2 AM and 3 AM in order to make a 23-hour day, we believe we have an extra hour of sunshine in the evening.

Wait. Maybe we ARE stupid.

For those who are on the Appalachian Trail and no longer wear watches it doesn't matter all that much.

For parents back in The Real World who have small kids in school, it's a drag. Children are going to be harder to get up in the morning and harder to put to bed each evening. Sorry, moms.

Hang in there! Daylight Saving Time ends on November 6, 2016.
