Daylight Saving Time ends in the United States tonight. So let us examine the situation a little more closely.

The extension of Daylight Saving Time into March and early November was an act of a more recent Congress. But when did that august body first adopt the practice of DST?

Since we will have less of it as winter takes its hold, just how many words can you make out of the letters in the word DAYLIGHT?

We'll reveal all next weekend, but hopefully not in the dark.
