What’s with changing time?

To the Editor:

Whose brainstorm idea was it to keep changing the clocks?

We gain an hour. We lose an hour. We set the clocks ahead, no back. What a pain in the butt.

There isn’t anyone I’ve talked to who likes this or thinks it’s good or even knows why anymore. So here’s a novel idea: How about all these politicians running for office pass a law to leave our clocks alone?

I guarantee they’ll get a lot of votes.
