Why do we turn out clocks back in the fall (and ahead in the spring)?

    I understand your point, but "winter" would be standard time. It is "summer' where we turn our clocks ahead to get more daylight (DST) in the PM. If it was for kids in school, we could stay on "winter" standard time all year.

    A true farmer gets up so early and doesn't need a government to tell them when the sun comes up, so how in the hell would it affect 'em? That is just plain stupid... Did Wikipedia start this?

    Saving electricity doesn't relate to growing corn...

    George Bush, 43, extended DST (now starts earlier and ends later), to save energy by having more useful hours of sunlight. I agree. Why not just pick one or the other for the whole year.
