Time to Fall Back!

Yet another reason to welcome the end of Daylight Saving Time. According to some Swedish researchers, there are fewer heart attacks following the end of Daylight Saving Time. Apparently most people don’t schedule in enough time for sleep. The time change forces an extra hour in. I guess that causes most to spend the extra hour sleeping…

Why do we have Daylight Saving Time? Here is a site that gives some historical info. Too bad neither McCain or Obama put this into their wish-list of changes. Guess we’ll have to wait till 2012 and see if it’ll make somebody’s list or not. Then again, the campainging for 2012 will probably start late 2009…Yikes!!  -KS
