You don't know how happy it makes me that it's 6:00 EST and still sunny. I'm not an early riser and when DST is going on I feel like I get more out of my day.

In all honesty, my biggest problem is that as far as I know, there's not many reasons nowadays to keep sticking with changing our clocks twice a year for daylight savings. I know it used to be for farmers primarily if I'm not mistaken, but I don't really know what other reasons there are currently.

They tried permanent DST before.  It was very unpopular because kids had to wait at pitch dark bus stops on school mornings.  Nothing has changed to prevent that.

Do kids not do that even during Standard Time? I sure did. Sounds like people just found a reason to bitch because that's what people do.
