There are a couple of bicyclists who might be alive today if we had not changed our clocks last Sunday. If the clocks weren’t moved ahead one hour they would not have been cycling to work in the dark. There is no good reason to keep fiddling with the clock. The blanket doesn’t get any longer when we cut a foot off the top and sew it on the bottom.

Mother nature gradually and naturally lengthens our days so it’s not necessary to arbitrarily change it just because of old reasons from bygone days. Studies show that an hour of light in the morning is better for you than the hour of light at the end of the day. Energy savings was one reason for daylight saving time, but now it can be easily argued that the opposite ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
