Regarding a recent letter to the editor about sticking with either daylight saving time or standard time: “Pick one and stick with it.” Key here is the statement “I don’t care which one you pick.”
And, why don’t you care? This is not just about you. First of all, there are many, who for personal reasons, none of which are for better health, desire one hour more of daylight in the late afternoon or evening and one less hour of morning light. The reasons for self-gratification are many, but the overarching design of human beings begs for alignment with permanent standard time.
The human body was created with the circadian rhythms that govern physical, mental and behavioral life conduct during a 24-hour life cycle. Our chrono-biological processes are guided by these genetic-imputed processes. Our life style, health and wellbeing are the result of adherence to a standard time wherever we live. Yet, our know-it-all congressional elected folks bargained away sound health in exchange for political concessions to the uninformed, or those who are just plain selfish, and those who just don’t care. So, lasaize faire, why not do your own thing.?
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences has been on record documenting the adverse effects amongst mankind who messes with their circadian rhythms. Our politicians, state and national, should be aware of these facts; so, when someone cares, and wants to do the right thing for all mankind, they should do the same. Pick permanent standard time and lets get on with this blather and baloney. The only living things in this world today that do not know what the correct time is are people. Congressional appointees and state legislators are elected to do the right things; not wrong things. They don’t decide; we do.
