Let There Be Light!

On a gloomy day, it's good to remember this good news.

On Monday, I Lileks' Bleat had this to say about Daylight Savings Time:

And next year it starts the second week of March! Suicides in the Nothern tier states will drop, I tell you.


So I decided to do a little digging and was thrilled to discover the details this change:

On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday of March and end the first Sunday of November. The Secretary of Energy will report the impact of this change to Congress. Congress retains the right to revert the Daylight Saving Time back to the 2005 time schedule once the Department of Energy study is complete.


Can't wait!
