Count me as favoring daylight saving time. For anyone else who prefers that we do away with it, I invite them to first visit Phoenix in the summer. Light begins to appear at 4 a.m. but in the evening when life is in full bloom, it is dark. All that early morning light is wasted.
Time is an assignment by man and the world lives by it so there is nothing sacred about sticking year round with standard time. Yes, there is some temporary adjustment made when we change the clocks, but if I fly east to New York or west to California, I make the same adjustments.
But if I go to Phoenix it is weird. There is nothing like a late evening walk in a Utah summer with some light remaining.
