DST

I always suspected that Daylight Savings Time was at its core, a stupid idea, and this article confirms it:
The reason we have Daylight Saving Time (DST), of course, is because the politicians have mandated it. Washington is much better at wasting things than saving them, but federal lawmakers nevertheless spent much of the 20th century insisting, with typical modesty, that they could 'save daylight.' (Why couldn't they instead have tried to save Social Security?)
