Idea in the Shower

I do some of my best (i.e. worst) thinking in the shower while waking up. Today, it occured to me that there's another solution to the ongoing problem of daylight savings time (clearly it's a problem since it's being debated in the halls of congress). Instead of everyone changing his or her clock in discontinuous jumps (which is both a big hassle and a metaphysical quandary) everyone could just be instructed to move 750 miles west for the summer. Unfortunately, I think the current old-fashioned system is too well-entrenched to be displaced by my superior solution. It's the QWERTY keyboard all over again.

Later today, I'm off for Old Blighty, so I will probably maintain radio silence 'til next week.
