Daylight Savings Time is Senseless

I understand and appreciate its historical significance during the WWI and WWII eras, but the practicalities that necessitated it during those bygone days haven’t existed for at least two generations.

Plus, it’s backwards: why move the clock forward at the point of the year when the days are naturally “growing longer”? I can’t help but think it would be vastly more useful to do the opposite.

I could care less whether it’s dark when I drive to work or dark when I drive home, but at the very least, we should pick one or the other and stick with it. The last thing we should be doing is exacerbating the difference between planetary tilt having placed the sun above or below the equator!
