Spring forward to annoyance

Are you enjoying the shortest weekend of the year?
Don't forget to spring back - although Dustbury finds someone annoyed enough to petition the White House to end the annual time change madness.
The real issue, however is not the later hours or extra sunlight. Studies have shown that changing the clocks is responsible for health problems (including increased heart attack and vehicular accident risks) and leads to hundreds of thousands of hours of lost productivity in workplaces across the country. Also: It's really annoying.
As someone who remembers the annoyance of DST not starting until the end of April, I welcome this weekend's change.
It means spring is coming.
