Indian words of wisdom

Reminder, Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday, 13 March.  A little limerick to help you remember which way to change the dial is “Spring forward, Fall back.” But it doesn’t explain why DST exists, or what it is supposed to do.

An old American Indian from Arizona when told of the government’s reason for implementing Daylight Savings Times, once observed, “Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom of the same blanket, and have a longer blanket.”
