For those who live under the rule of daylight savings time -- tonight's the night to set your clocks back one hour. Remember, "Spring Forward, Fall Back."
Next year, however, it will be different:
"There's a New Day Ahead for Daylight Saving Time
"Thanks to passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Daylight Saving Time will begin one month earlier in 2007 and will continue for an extra week. It's part of a phased move designed to conserve electricity and save an estimated 300,000 barrels of oil a year."
So, technically, "Standard Time" has nothing to do with time at all. It's merely an economic matter. Interesting. I've never really stopped to ponder that before.
