Ditch daylight saving time

I am sitting here at 8:12 p.m. and decided I can’t go to bed yet as my inner clock is telling me to wind down but the clock says it’s only 8:30 p.m. Why do we Californians have to have daylight saving time? It costs companies lots of money to change their systems and some of the employees will probably be late. Plus, many churches are half-filled Sunday mornings when the time changes. I am a senior citizen and it takes me exactly one year to adjust to the new time. Then they go and change it again. I heard about a wise old Indian chief who said, “Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom and have a longer blanket.” Isn’t that the truth? Let’s complain to our politicians that it is time to save money, not time. Ruth Smith, Auburn
