Where has the time gone?

Really, despite the nice chill in the air- fall sucks! Don;t get me wrong, the color on the trees is beautiful and the 80 degree highs are nice too, but why do we still have to obey daylight savings?? I am not sure about how the rest of the world feels, but leaving work in the complete darkness at 6 pm is horrible. I feel the need to go directly home, bypass dinner and crawl into bed.

The history of daylight savings is interesting... as quoted from Wikipedia- "Daylight saving has caused controversy since it began.[1] Winston Churchill argued that it enlarges "the opportunities for the pursuit of health and happiness among the millions of people who live in this country".[69] Robertson Davies, however, detected "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",[70] and wags have dubbed it "Daylight Slaving Time".

Well, maybe I will move to a state that has decided against it- I hear Arizona is nice this time of year!
