Today — March 8 — Texans will set their clocks ahead by one hour as they spring forward from dismal Central Standard Time to the illuminating daylight savings time for six months, until it comes time to fall back by an hour on Nov. 1 and return to gloomy standard time.

The time has come to end this clock-changing angst and the confusion it always causes. Let’s set it and forget it. Make daylight savings permanent. The benefits are enormous.

I totally agree with the idea of one time all the time. If there are among us those who cling to the darkness of standard time, maybe we split the difference. We could move the big hand by half an hour to split the difference right down the middle. [innocent]
