    It goes back a lot farther than Carter: Richard Nixon implemented extended daylight savings time "to conserve energy"; and the original idea for daylight savings time was suggested by Benjamin Franklin. Nothing was done with the idea until WWII, when daylight savings time was established to save energy.

    I'd just as soon stay on DST all year long; I don't care if the sun goes down at 4:30 PM.
