Daylight Savings Time and the 4th of July

As the 4th of July is here I can't help, but think of another reason I hate Daylight Savings time.

I have always found dusk rather late when I have gone to see fireworks in July. Now this year with Daylight Savings taking effect here in Indiana the latest of dusk is just ridiculous.

My other reasons for hating it are as follows.

It was hard to put the kids to bed at a reasonable hour in the summer before we went to Daylight Savings. Now it is terribly cruel. I have no choice to let them stay up, since I still have to get up at the same time I did before Daylight Savings kicked in and I have to go to bed at the same time.

Also on the subject of having to get up at the same time, it is now well before dawn. At least before during the summer I would have a period of time where the sun was rising when I was.

I voted for Mitch Daniels and this makes me regret it every day that I am under Daylight Savings Time.
