Goodbye, 2am. Daylight Savings Time once again is inflicted on North American, starting two weeks before the solstice. This year, we allegedly save daylight and are forced to wake up an hour early for eight months. DST isn't needed. People can decide when to wake up, when to go to bed, and how to best use their time, especially now that daylight hours aren't a restriction on working and playing hours. The health risks aren't worth the light saved.
