Daylight Savings Time To Be Abolished In Yakima…
If I have my way that's exactly what will happen. People think it has something to do with farmers so they'll have longer daylight hours to work their crops but it has nothing to do with that. The first country to implement Daylight Savings Time was Germany during World War I as a way to conserve coal. We beat their ass, why should we follow their stupid customs?
Call me crazy but I'd prefer it was dark when I went to sleep. I don't think we need it to be light out after 9pm.
What's next? Are we going to move Christmas to May? Are we going to start measuring things starting at the one inch mark? Actually I like that idea. Besides, what are we actually saving? We don't get more daylight. That would be like borrowing from your credit card, putting the money in your savings account and telling people you were saving.
If we abolish Daylight Savings time in Yakima we'll get to sleep in an hour later than those suckers in Seattle half the year, gain an hour this November 1st (when we move back to Pacific Standard Time) that we never have to give back and get busy one hour earlier because most people don't want to make the double-backed monster in the bright sunlight and have the image of their partners naked body seared into their consciousness forever.
