Never did understand that one. No matter WHAT time it gets dark it STAYS dark the same amount of time. Kind of a no brainer.Doesn't bother me...However, studies have shown that the rate of heart attacks and motor vehicle accidents increase substantially in the few days following the time change. So maybe that's a good reason to abolish it? I don't think it really does much to save power as George Dubya claimed in a speech a year or two ago..?
