I'm not sure how John M. Peterson ("Keep Daylight Saving," Readers' Forum, Dec. 30) determined that the "majority" of people like daylight saving time. I'm sure he's not including a few of us in that unofficial poll. Like those of us who dread trying to get young children on a different sleep schedule twice a year.

Sure, adults love the extra hour in the fall, but those internal clocks in kids aren't as easy to adjust. And even with the new-fangled alarm clocks that change themselves, we still spend precious time adjusting the other 20 or so time-telling devices that are in the average house.

What does it matter if there's an extra hour of daylight in the morning or evening? We're a 24/7 society, and someone's going to still be getting up or going to bed in the dark. So let's let nature take care of our days and nights.
