Mike sez, "We are off Daylight Savings Time again as of 2 this morning. Check out this drive-in intermission film from the 1950s. At exactly 2 minutes into the clip is an exhortation to stay off DST. Staying on "natural" time was portrayed as almost a patriotic and religious duty, but the real reason was undoubtedly that it cut into the drive-ins' business."
It is indeed DST day today -- turn back your clocks, change the batteries in your smoke alarms, and don't crash your car from circadian disorientation.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
