Daylight savings time began this weekend. The daylight savings period is longer than it used to be. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 made daylight savings time start a few weeks earlier and end a week later. It now starts in March and ends in November, meaning we’re on daylight savings time for over seven months. Is it worth it? Ask me when I’ve adjusted. In the meantime, the Los Angeles Times has a short story about the controversy over daylight savings time and those who seek to abolish it.
