It's That Most Wonderful Time of the Year . . . Again

Like the sands of the hourglass, so are the Sentences by Dave . . . and if you visit here daily, then you know to expect run-ons, awkwardness, miracles, questionable punctuation, and an annual rant on Daylight Saving Time . . . so, without further fanfare, here it is: my middle school soccer game was rained out yesterday and rescheduled for the coming Monday, and normally this wouldn't be a problem, but because some bureaucrat in some windowless office decided that Daylight Saving Time should by November 1st this year, one of my players is going to get kicked in the face with a ball . . . because he can't see it . . . because it's going to get unnaturally dark at ten after five on Monday . . . because this aforementioned bureaucrat in his windowless office doesn't care about the children, who need light after school, so that they can play and not get hit by cars or soccer balls.

Technically speaking, Dave, the end of Daylight Savings Time on November 1 means that we go back to standard time, meaning that quite the contrary, it will be very naturally dark at ten after five, and that the daylight your players have been enjoying around that time in recent weeks was government-fabricated and government-controlled daylight. You savored and now bemoan the loss of the very thing you rail against.

Sorry. I know you love bitching about DST.
