On March 13, the U.S. will impose its Daylight Saving Time on millions of clocks.
Daylight Saving (not Savings) Time in most of the U.S. is the second Sunday in March (the 13th this year) and runs until the first Sunday in November. Clocks and timepieces will revert from standard time to one hour earlier during those dates.
Remember, it's spring forward and fall back.
Now that we're on the verge of moving out of Standard Time -- or "God's time," as some would have it -- the fingers of blame for the senseless exercise called Daylight Saving will soon be wagging again. And, as they have done for more than a century, many of those digits will point "out there" toward the countryside and rural areas where the backward and ignorant farmers who came up with the idea reside.
This, of course, is contrary to what I know about Daylight Saving. All the farmers I've met or have heard from on the matter have been pretty much opposed to a scheme that pushes morning chores an hour deeper into darkness in order to afford bankers, doctors and Congressmen an extra hour of golf in the evening.
