Leaving DLT

Here's a modest proposal: Given that Daylight Savings Time now lasts from early March till early November and we have only three full  months in Standard Time, perhaps we should reconsider our nomenclature.

Maybe we should call the time we just entered — which begins with cold, bright evenings and takes us through spring, summer and fall — Standard Time.

And those other outlier weeks — we'll call them either Winter Time or Daylight Losing Time (DLT).

I know. It's a negative message.

But isn't it closer to the truth?
