Letter: Daylight saving time

To the Editor:

My wife and I just finished changing the time on our clocks back an hour, and in six months we will get to do it again, this time advancing them an hour.

When will this idiotic process end, so we can go with one time for the whole year? Most of the other countries in the world do not observe “daylight saving time.” What are we really saving?

This was started in the late 1800s and early 1900s, when electricity was not prevalent in the country, and things are very different now. I hope this changing clocks thing will end soon.
