Should we stay on daylight savings time all the time? Such a proposal has been bounced around here in Iowa. The idea is, in WWII, this in fact occurred, because it apparently does save energy. So why don't we do it at all times? The safety of kids on morning school buses doesn't seem to matter a lot if they are coming home in the dark instead. And the transition catches drivers by surprise and may actually cause accidents. Why not stay on it all the time? After all, noon doesn't come anywhere near the center of most people's day. Is there some reason we should prefer our darkness late in the day rather than early?
