    I would prefer DST year around as well, the short evenings getting dark at 5:00 really mess with my circadian rhythm. Shorter days in winter are bad enough, especially for those with SAD such as myself.

    I could be happy with year-round Daylight Time; switching back and forth twice a year is what I don't like. With DST, it might stay lighter in the late afternoon, but it is dark longer in the morning. Either way, winters in Michigan are cold, dark, and dreary.

    You will have so many hours of daylight in the winter and the summer so what difference does it make to associate a time with it. Keep DST or get rid of it I don't care.

    Daylight saving? Most Americans dislike twice-a-year time changes

    Indianapolis – Most people across the country will see their clocks roll back an hour on Sund as nearly eight months of daylight saving time comes to an end. It is part of a twice-a-year ritual that most want to stop.

    Seven in 10 Americans prefer not to switch back and forth to mark daylight saving time, a new poll shows. But there’s no agreement on which time clocks ought to follow...

    What needs to happen is getting rid of having to turn the clock back/forward: we need one constant time and stick with it. It really messes with human's body clocks-- our bodies don't care about friggin' clocks---

    DH and I have already begun the twice-yearly rigmarole of setting clocks back an hour. What a pain in the butt! Like it or not, we get an additional hour of shuteye tonight.
