Sometimes you just have to shake your head.
Council seeks to keep daylight a while longer
Keep clocks ahead to work, city pleads
If the New Orleans City Council has its way, daylight-saving time will be extended in the city past its normal end Oct. 30 to give homeowners and others an extra hour of evening daylight to work on their hurricane-damaged property.
The council Wednesday unanimously passed a resolution, introduced by Councilman Jay Batt, asking Gov. Kathleen Blanco to issue an executive order extending daylight-saving time in Orleans Parish “until further notice.”
Otherwise, the resolution says, the workday would in effect be reduced by one hour starting Oct. 30.
Because waking up an hour earlier without the clock telling you to is just so hard. Why have the clock lie to you about what time it is? Just wake up at 5 instead of 6. It’s the same thing. Daylight savings time is just a placebo for people who don’t like small numbers on the alarm clock.
And the way this numbskull reporter wrote the piece, it sounds like the Council is really giving people another daylight hour. It is poorly worded at best.
