Why not just tell people to go to work an hour earlier and leave the clocks alone.
Simple: that would not entail messing with everybody's lives, which seems to be the sole purpose of government these days. (And don't worry - that's as political as I'm gonna get right now.)
With more modern employers going to flex-time scheduling to accomodate modern lifestyles, there really is no need for DST. As YouCanToo said, the farmers (for whom DST was ostensibly devised in the first place) get up early anyway.
Yeah, I'd better shut up now, else I feel a rant just waiting to bust out, and I don't want that happening right now.
