I've always hated the twice-yearly time changes, especially in the fall when my wrist watch and electric clocks have to be moved ahead 23 hours to get them back to Standard Time. Now there's proof that this is all very unhealthy!
Daylight Saving May Change Heart Attack Timing

Personally, I'm an advocate of year- around DST. YMMV, of course!

I still think people would be far more open to moving the clocks ahead one hour if the change were done at 4pm on a Friday.

One nice thing about Arizona is that we stay on Mountain Standard Time year around. No spring back, fall forward, or whatever, in the land of Jan Brewer and Constitutional Carry and .....

I don't like DST because the extra hour of sun in the evening burns my grass. Just think how much water we could save if we got rid of it.
