More daylight? Ingeniuous!

Okay I must have been out of the loop when this was passed but I figure now's as good a time as any to praise it's merits. Apparantly Congress passed a law last year that starting in 2007, Daylight Savings Time will be extended by two months each year. Beginning in 2007, DST will start the second Sunday of March and end on the first Sunday of November. The theory behind this is that we will use less energy because sunlight will "last longer" and the need for electric lighting will be reduced. I'm all for saving energy, but I'm pretty sure this doesn't mean we're off the hook for saving energy in other ways.
