Hopefully by the time you read this your clocks are set and you’re not late for work or church this morning. Let me take this opportunity to
bitch complain about daylight savings time. First instituted during World War I our nation went back and forth on it until it was permanently adopted in the 1970’s during the energy crisis.
The interesting thing is that studies have shown it doesn’t save energy or public safety. In fact, it’s bad for our health. Cardiac events increase greatly following the leap forward on our clocks. There are more car accidents, suicides and just generally cranky people from throwing off our body’s circadian rthym and the subsequent lack of sleep.

ruined brightened your morning let’s get to highlights from the web last week!
