Perspective - March 9, 2007


asked at Starbucks on Hartz Avenue

Daylight-saving time begins Sunday, March 11, three weeks earlier than usual. Do you like this longer period for daylight-saving time?

Absolutely, it's the best! It means summer will be here soon. There's more sunshine, which is healthier. I'm really bad at tracking the time change. One time I got to the airport at 4 a.m. for a 6:30 a.m. flight because I forgot to set my clock the night before.

Yes. I enjoy more of the day and I get to be outside. When I leave work and get home it's not dark outside. The thing I don't like is that it's dark when you wake up.

I like it. The longer days allow you to be outside longer. Someone else has to remind me to set the clocks forward.

I do, I think you get a lot more done and more time during the day. The day rolls by so fast and by 5-6 p.m., it seems like you have more time. I had a birthday party for my daughter during this time and people showed up a few hours late. It seems like they didn't have a chance or any clues to look at a clock before the party.

I like it. I change my clocks and my girlfriend changes hers. I have more time to be outside, work out and ride my bike.
