I found this quote on Daylight Saving Time that I found a little amusing:
I object to being told that I am saving daylight when my reason tells me that I am doing nothing of the kind. I even object to the implication that I am wasting something valuable if I stay in bed after the sun has risen. As an admirer of moonlight I resent the bossy insistence of those who want to reduce my time for enjoying it. At the back of the Daylight Saving scheme I detect the bony, blue-fingered hand of Puritanism, eager to push people into bed earlier, and get them up earlier, to make them healthy, wealthy and wise in spite of themselves.
– Robertson Davies, The Diary of Samuel Marchbanks, 1947, XIX, Sunday
Japan, India, and China remain holdouts against Daylight Saving Time. Maybe when Gov. Daniels goes there courting jobs for Indiana, he can remind those countries what a great economic tool DST is. You know, since it actually results in additional –not less– energy consumption.
