I had the opportunity over the weekend to listen in to some Hoosierville natives discuss Daylight Savings Time. I enjoyed it very much!

I’m sure you wouldn’t be surprised to find that I’m a strong proponent of daylight savings time, and that your average native Hoosiervillian would be adamantly against it. After all, this is the first time they’ve had to observe it, and they don’t seem to take a fancy to change very well!

I came away from the conversation with the distinct impression that their bodies must be exquisitely and inextricably connected to every miniscule movement of the sun. So when you change the clock, it throws their entire systems completely out of whack! Those finely tuned instruments they call their bodies just can’t take it when the clock disagrees with how they feel. The amount of physical persecution it evidently is for them was nothing short of amazing to me.

They have my profound sympathy, be assured!
