No Daylight Savings Time.

And soon the illegal aliens will complain because they need that extra hour of
daylight to cross over the border. I can see the ACLU filing a lawsuit now.

Hawaii doesn't have DST either, and it's a long swim from Mexico.

We don't need no mo' daylight... we have enough already ;-)

Jim hates daylight saving as an idea. He thinks the sun shines out of his
ass and he doesn't want to get up an hour early for anyone.

I miss it. Not the lack of silly clock-changing, but having the sun rise and
set *on time*. Not having to change your internal clock is an added bonus.

Good on ya Arizona...

Perth (Western Australia) is going through the DST battle for the 3rd
time in 15 years - a referendum defeated it on both previous
occasions.

The crux of the issue is that Perth already has more sunlight hours
than any other capital city. Perth is actually (solar time) about 2hrs
20min behind the east coast cities of Melbourne and Sydney (which do
have DST during summer) but for convenience sake we operate on a 2 hr
difference in winter and 3 hrs in summer when they have DST. This
means we already have 20min DST all year round as it is, but that is
ok. Business which has vested interests and the younger carefree part
of the community who only think of having more time to booze and
nightclub and surf are all for DST during summer but the older and
wiser part of the community is saying NO! Perth has just experienced a
weeks run of around 40C (2 days above 42C) so we don't need more
sunlight hours.

Perth has an average of more than 8 hours sunlight ALL year round with
summer peaking at an average of over 10 hrs per day. Sydney on the
east coast is lucky to average just over 6hrs per day all year round
yet our state leaders want US to have even more daylight hours to play
with. Bah - humbug, I say - I don't get to watch the 7pm tv news now
(we are again currently trialling DST) and because it is still light
outside I keep working. It just means burning the candle at both ends
as far as I am concerned. While you are young it is fine but as you
get older it is no fun anymore.

My work allows some degree of flex-time. You are expected to work at
least 40 hours a week, be in plant (or call in to meetings) during
core time (9AM-3PM). make all your appointments, and be there when the
boss calls an all-hands meeting. So I could just get up at the same
sun time as before, but that would put in the bad traffic an hour
later than usual.

Nah, you just want your time to be the same as California's
for part of the year. You wannabes are probably glad for
the longer DST because now you'll line up longer.

The neat thing about DST is that it serves as a perpetual demonstration of how
easily bad ideas *will* be adopted regardless of the effect, inconvenience and
cost because the "Everybody else is doing it" and "We Must Do ... Something"
decision making.

Hardly.

Most of my business comes from the eastern and central time zones...
and Europe and Australia... less than 7% from California.

Right, and whenever I drive from Albuquerque to points-West, I can
never figure out when to turn my watch back: at the AZ border, or the
Colorado river. The same thing applied to making phone calls the
Phoenix -- is it an hour earilier, or the same time?

I finally got it all straight, but it took a while.

During DST Arizona is two hours earlier than Mountain daylight time,
the same as Pacific daylight time.

In the UK the politicians (otherwise known as '[email protected]') are talking
about DST (Double Summer Time). The clocks will go on to CET and GMT
will disappear completely. It will also mean that, in the middle of
winter, it will get dark at about 3pm.
