Horse gone. Lock barn.

Ah, if only someone had sounded the alarm last night:

Does anybody really know what time it is?

Yes. Time to remind reporters that there are still vacancies in the circle of hell right next to the entrance marked "Up, Up and Away."

Really. Anybody?

That’s a question some may have asked over the past week, as we experienced the first change to the “fall back” part of daylight saving time in 40 years. The time went back an hour at 2 a.m. today, a week later than usual, thanks to a piece of congressionally mandated temporal tampering designed to curb energy use.

Some writing gets worse before it gets better. And some writing just gets worse.

I've read it five times now, and I just don't get the "first time in 40 years" part. Is Michigan one of those places that doesn't do DST?

Sorry I didn't give, oh, appropriate credit to the originating fishwrap; it's Colorado Springs. I _think_ he's going after the idea that the October date was settled precedent.

Glad I went back to the files, tho. What do you suppose the Colorado Springs lede was when the new March date was introduced?
