Daylight Saving Time changing on-and-off dates

Just an aside, but this article in the Washington Post (Thursday, February 1, 2007; page A-1) alleges that few folks know about (or remember) the extension of Daylight Saving Time that was approved by Congress in August 2005. The article’s author, Charles Babington, includes some history and a little trivia about this “American institution” while introducting us to the headaches that are involved in making this simple act happen. Assuming that the world doesn’t end in a Y2K-ish stimy, the important thing to remember, is that we’ll now spring ahead on the second Sunday in March, and fall back on the first Sunday in November.
