Is It Time To Do Away With Daylight Saving Time

Is It Time To Do Away With Daylight Saving Time

By Jeff Wagner. CREATED Mar 7, 2014

Sunday morning we all "spring ahead" with the return of daylight saving time.

By the way, note to reporters and editors at the local newspaper, it's "daylight saving time" not "daylight savings time".

In any event, switching our clocks forward in the Spring and back in the Fall has become extemely controversial.  Opponents say the practice wastes energy and takes a toll on our health.  Proponents say the practice saves energy and saves lives.

Go figure.

During the 1 p.m. hour of Friday's radio show, we'll discuss whether Daylight Saving Time should be dropped, kept all year or left as is.

Please feel free to share your thoughts in the Comments section - and be sure to check back later to hear a replay of the segment.
