Welcome to the blog on the weekend of the deadly change. Below you'll find lots, some of it hard-nosed, and some of it just fun.
The number of bills this year going through state legislatures is way up. The press attention is way up. It really seems like the momentum is finally moving our way.
Even this cartoon today gave me some hope.
Even last year there would NOT have been a joke that included even the idea that Daylight Saving Time clock-changing may go away.
If you hate clock-changing, I hope you'll do a little to raise your voice. Talk to a state legislator, even just tweet about it.
And be in touch with me to let me know what you are doing and we'll put it on this blog.
I recently drove across Nebraska to testify to the senate there. The legislative aid said it would be great if I could do it if it wasn't too inconvenient. I told him it WAS inconvenient, and if I only did what was convenient, nothing would ever change!
I felt like such a hero, but then just before me a young man testified and his courage really put whatever inconvenience I had to shame. It was great to watch, and you can watch it now, too:
And be sure to take care on Monday morning, that's the deadly one. I suggest you observe National Turn Off Your Alarm Clock Day.
Thanks for reading!
