PERSONALLY, I LOVE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME: Why daylight saving time isn’t as terrible as people think. If I had my way, we’d have it year-round, and double-daylight-savings in the winter. I don’t care if it’s dark in the morning, but I hate it when it’s dark before I get home from work. When it’s dark in the morning, I feel virtuous for rising before the sun. When it’s dark on the way home, I feel like I’ve worked until bedtime. Living in Knoxville, which is just a stone’s throw (almost literally, it’s like 40 miles) from the dividing line with Central time, I kinda get that already. But I’m still sad when daylight savings ends.
