Quotes for the Week: Daylight Saving Time

I'm still sleepy from losing that hour Sunday to daylight saving time. Here are some quotes about the time change:

"Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of the blanket and have a longer blanket." — Attributed to "an old Indian" when told the reason for daylight-saving time.

"The beauty of daylight-saving time is that it just makes everyone feel sunnier." »Edward Markey, quoted in Associated Press, July 22, 2005

It's Barack Obama stealing an hour of my time to distribute it to poor people. Oh, I know they say you get your hour back in the fall, but who's earning the intrest on that hour in the meantime? Stephen Colbert

I don't see the point in Daylight Savings. I wish we'd do away with it.

I'm with Kelly on this one. I know at some point it served its purpose, but I would like to be done with it. I'm still exhausted from losing that hour!
