The conspiracy to steal our time continues:
Let There Be Light
Congress, in the name of saving energy, wants to extend daylight-saving time by two months. If it passes a proposed energy bill with this amendment as written, daylight-saving time would begin on the last Sunday in March and end on the last Sunday in November. "Extending daylight-saving time makes sense, especially with skyrocketing energy costs," said Rep. Fred Upton (R-Michigan), who along with Rep. Ed Markey (D-Massachusetts) co-sponsored the measure. "The more daylight we have, the less electricity we use," said Markey, who cited Transportation Department estimates that showed the two-month extension would save the equivalent of 10,000 barrels of oil a day. The country uses about 20 million barrels of oil a day.
