To me the only thing daylight savings time harmed was the drive-in movie business. It made the time it was dark enough to watch a movie too late and customer's having to stay up too late for work the next day, etc.

I personally like the fact it provides more daylight hours in the summer. If we did not fall back it would get dark too early in the winter. Whether or not it saves energy is to me irrelevant, it provides a more pleasant living environment.

You mean get light too late (in the morning)? DST would push sunset later all year round.

Correct, and that is mainly a concern for school children. Older children may still have to catch buses, etc. in the dark, but since the younger ones typically start later they are more likely to be in the light when catching their bus, etc.

A lovely reason for having Standard Time year 'round.

DST is a little inconvenience for those of us in the commodiity market that trade on the London Metal Exchange. The US is a few weeks in front of London's time change (London changes on 3/30) so I don't get official prices until 9:15am (vs the norm of 8:15). I get to extend my coffee hour at Starbucks for a few weeks

So do you just trade zinc or other metals as well?

Hi natininja--

You know, I have wondered at times if the Brits sit around in their living rooms and try to speak in an American accent?
