    Daylight savings time sucks spring 2020!!!

    I agree. I vote DST. Follow up to my last post: My brother is in Indiana, where some counties did EDT, some stayed on EST all year. It was confounding. They standardized it to all go EST and EDT (except for a few counties near Chicago and the southwestern corner that are on Central Time). Griping about their place in the space timezone continuum for Hoosiers is just like griping about the weather for the rest of the world.

    Daylight savings time sucks spring 2020!!!

    Perspective: Living on the eastern edge of my time zone, I despise Standard time. I much prefer driving to work in the dark and getting an extra hour of daylight later in the day to this whole dark at 4 pm b.s. that happens in December. My brother lives nearby on the western edge of his time zone. He despises Daylight time. His newspaper publishes articles every year decrying it. I love that Daylight savings duration was extended on the calendar. He hates it.

    R,I.P. Thread

    Grant Hart, drummer and half the singing/songwriting of Hüsker Dü, has passed away. I was too young to catch the band before they broke up, but my brother was at their penultimate show in 1987 where they tore through the entirety of their swansong album Warehouse: Songs and Stories. I wish I could have seen them. Bob Mould is the name that many know from Hüsker Dü, but Grant wrote and sang so many of their great songs. The sheer volume (both output and sound level!) in their short run remains breathtaking. RIP, Grant.
