Some say, "DST? Not for me!"

Still groggy from that lost hour of sleep last night? 

Me, too.

At least I can soothe the pain of the "early" alarm with the knowledge that I'm saving energy, right?

Not so fast!  A study released late last year suggests that the switch actually caused an increase in energy use in Indiana.

(PS — It's "daylight saving time", with no 's' at the end of 'saving'.)
