Letter: Stick with standard time

I do not like the recent time change at all. I really wish we would get rid of daylight saving time and leave our clocks on standard time. Why is that so hard to do? It’s confusing, it’s hazardous to our mental health, it doesn’t benefit anyone anymore and it’s outdated and inaccurate.

I refuse to adjust my clocks for daylight saving time and I always leave them on standard time for the entire year. Indiana, Arizona and Hawaii don’t observe daylight saving time and most of the world has also gotten rid of it, so why do we still have this outdated practice in the rest of the country?
