What I find funny is that DST is used in the American stations... Are we
nuts? Or am I so ignorant that I am misunderstanding? Isn't "daytime"
rather different at the poles? What am I missing? Surely there aren't
many crops for farmers to be working, to "take advantage of daylight
hours" with daylight savings time.... And they're not even changing on the
... DST, which I wish we'd do away with, personally.
Why are we so hung up on DST?
