PLEASE! More daylight hours all year is a positive for everyone. School kids waiting in the dark for busses isn't as much of an issue anymore since schools finally came to their senses and quit starting school at 7:15/7:30. Starting later makes more sense for kids and negates any negative of DST!!!!

The time change is outdated.

Why not. It lets your inner clock stay in sync.

It's a real pain to keep switching back and forth. I have at least 10 clocks that have to be changed by hand. And, the original purpose back in WWI has long since become obsolete.

More sleep would be nice although it would be bad for the economy to change it

There are no more hours per day in “daylight saving time” in a 24 hour day then there are in Standard Time. Why are we changing the time to permanent DST. Why not permanent Standard Time like we had for many years. The kids would not have to go to school during quite as many dark hours. Think about

An old native American was asked what he thouight about the new daylight saving. He replied,"only the federal government would cut six inches off of the top of a blanket sew it on to the bottom and think he has a larger blanket".

We already tried it; people hated it so much it was quickly reversed. Most of the people wanting to do this weren't alive when that failure of a policy was tried.

I want STANDARD time to be permanent! We started at standard time, why not go back to where we started? Why change it to Daylight savings time? I think it is creepy for it to be daylight at 9 PM!

Mother Nature provides longer daylight during the summer months. We should keep it at standard time forever.

I don't want it to be dark in the mornings in winter. Students catching school buses will be in total darkness. Not a good thing.

The time should be permanently kept at Standard (God's) Time.

Don't know that proper nouns are capitalized? Don't know how to punctuate? He has "a" article? Thanks for the homeschool perspective on graduation.

Lars Larsen? Seriously? I'd rather gouge my eyes out with an ice pick. ;-)

It is a cheaper co-pay to go to certain Urgent Care Centers and is worth the gas money spent to save more.
