Daylight For America!

In the pursuit of a more perfect, safer, and productive union:

Looking back @ the image above it looks like I posted about the issue of Daylight Savings Time almost 10 years ago.

Apparently, this is currently an issue in the halls of the U.S. Congress and the capitol building in Columbia, SC….and yay for it!

I typed then, and contend today, that daylight savings time is a positive for most people, and the greater good.

Think of it. Who wants to show a house in the dark at 5:30 PM? Even if it’s no problem for the REALTOR, the buyer is certain to have to go back again to see the property in the light of day.

Further, who wants to get a haircut in the dark? Who wants to pay their insurance in the dark (mind you, not everyone pays online).

Further still, golf courses and zillions of other businesses get an extra hour of commerce.

Here’s a quiz: How many people are playing tennis at 6:30-8:30 AM vs 5:30-7:30 – weekdays or weekends.

Even further, think of public safety (including driving)…

I’m not selling you, I’m just telling you that having the sun up later in the day is good for America.

Thank you!
