So the U.S. Senate has unanimously passed a bill to make Daylight Savings Time (DST) the de facto time in the United States.
While nothing new to Hawaii, Arizona, and parts of Indiana, it would certainly be a change for the other 47.5 states in the union.
But would it really? Who wants to change their clocks twice a year? Who wants to try to remember which clocks change automatically and which ones don’t? Who wants to have to remember when the heck “spring forward” and “fall back” happen especially after it changed during the Obama administration? Most importantly, who wants to have to find the instructions to remind themselves how to change the time?
Whatever. It’s not a big deal to me. I just did it and stopped caring for four to eight months.
What would be really mind blowing would be to move to the Metric system for measurement.
Or saying “football” and truly meaning soccer.
Or writing dates as DD/MM/YYYY instead of MM/DD/YYYY.
Or using 24 hour time instead of god-forsaken AM/PM.
Or going after pharmaceutical companies about drug costs.
Let’s aim high!!!
