Daylight Savings Time Must Change.

I am starting a movement. Every year we "Spring Ahead" one hour over the weekend. With the new rules, that means a crucial weekend during which many people started celebrating St. Patrick's Day was shortened by a crucial hour. This is just plain immoral!

Here is my solution: We should move the time change to a Tuesday afternoon, at about 3PM. Allow Americans to shorten their work day by 1 hour one day a year. Politicians will love could you not vote for a guy who let you go home an hour early.

As for the "Fall Back" part of the deal, let's keep the extra hour on the weekend.

Since I don't work 9 to 5, I would lead a movement against your proposal. 10 o'clock would work better; NBC would be in favor of it because it doesn't show much at that hour any more.
