Thumbs up Dst

Ok, so as Chris suggested DST Yes or No? A big yes here. I would like to understand your reasoning if you feel differently. (I have wondered this since I moved here 14 years ago.)

I lived in the west chicago burbs, and hated DST, you had to deal with the time change, and I'm such a routine freak that I can't deal with a change in my routine.

Oh well. I had really hoped to understand the apparent widespread opposition. Even if it isn't, I'd love to understand the reasoning of those who are in power to keep things as they have been.

No DST for me.

I hated it when I was a kid, going to bed (when I was little we went to bed at 8:00p.m.) and the stinking evening sun was shining bright against my drawn down window blind. And walking to school in the pitch black of a morning.

I've never been for it, and have yet to hear a reasonable reason to want it. I've heard many arguments in favor of it but have yet to hear one that sounds convincing.

"Other states can't keep track of what time it is in Indiana"- With the technology and the intelligence level of today's world, can it really be that difficult to figure out? I'm just an average working stiff and I have no problem figuring out what time it is in any of the continental United States at any given time of year. It's not rocket science.

"An extra hour of daylight at the end of the day"- Okay...why? It'll still be light out at 10:00pm during some summer months, which for me is no advantage, and could be a disadvantage.

There are many other arguements, but I'm just not convinced.

AHA!! You just gave credence to something I've said for years....that DST was created by/for lawyers, doctors, etc so that they could get in an extra round of golf before nightfall!...

I've lived here all my life so I don't have any experience with it. I guess it don't matter to me really. When I get up its dark here in this basement, so the dark wouldn't bother me in the morning, other than the pita factor twice a year. I suppose I can fish longer in the evenings since i'm to lazy to get my but outta bed earlier to go to work.. Now when October comes around I got deer on my mind I can get up anytime... Now that I just shot cpe41's theory all to heck, i'm outta here...

If they change the time zone as well, to central time, (if I remember right) it will be freakin dark at 5:00p.m. in the (Nov/Dec) winter.

Won't be no deer huntin' in the evening after work.

We have all heard the saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it". That should have applied here. Just my opinion.

I would have to agree with superdave, Is this all our elected officials have to concern themselves with. I dont recall thousands of citizens jumping up and down to change this, so it couldnt have been a big deal! But they have spent (wasted) 4 months trying to get this done! Now maybe the elected officials can find the time to focus on balancing the budget, enticing new industry to Indiana, fixing our education system and other things of importance for our future. Or do we really matter!

Just my .02,
Cruzer
