Its always seemed to me the tradition of "saving time" in the summer is 
exactly backward. Why "save time" in the summer when there is already 
naturally more daylight? If the idea is to "save time" at the end of the 
day (sunset) why isn't this done in the winter, as Palm Springs 
attempted? This would make more sense to me. But the whole idea of 
"saving time" doesn't really make any sense to begin with, does it? 
Well, tradition is tradition.
