What do you think of daylight savings time?

Personally, I’d like to make it permanent. I like the extra hour of sleep I got this weekend, but prefer having extra light at the end of the day.

I’m also okay with standard time being permanent, but only if we adjust our schedules to get that extra hour of daylight at the end of the work day (and I suspect it is easier to make DST permanent than to change schedules.)

Daylight saving time: 19 states seek to make DST year-round
If you're tired of changing your clocks twice a year, there could be some hope on the horizon. But a change to federal law would be required.
