Daylight saving isn’t worth trouble

I agree with Bill Scott’s letter last Saturday — I can’t see any practicality in the continued use of daylight saving time. The claim of energy savings is lost when people wake up in the dark when daylight saving is in use and turn on the lights.

I live in Arizona, and don’t see how my life would benefit if we were to change our clocks twice a year like most of the country. I’m certainly not hurt by not using it. And think of all those hundreds of millions of clocks that must be corrected.

The use of daylight saving time is worth little more than the idle chatter its use generates, the aggravation it causes and the occasional letter to the editor.
