Down With DST

Thanks to meep for pointing to an editorial about the evils of DST, I discovered the latest addition to my amazon.com wishlist: Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time.

It will, no doubt, be required reading when the new regime is established.

And if anyone wants to go ahead and order me a copy of the book, they can have a title of their choosing when the new regime is established.

The previously mentioned editorial sheds some light on the dangers of DST:
But the very worst thing about DST is that it's bad for your health. According to Stanley Coren, a sleep expert at the University of British Columbia, the number of traffic accidents and fatal industrial mishaps increase on the Monday after we spring forward.... The reason, presumably, is because losing even a single hour of sleep over the weekend makes a lot of people a bit drowsier on what we might usefully call Black Monday. Unfortunately, there's no compensating effect of a super-safe Monday as we go off DST and "fall back" in the autumn.
DST: It's Bad For Your Health, It's Bad For Our Country.
