At 2:00 AM this Sunday morning people in most of the United States
will set their clocks ahead one hour as we begin began Daylight Saving Time. Many households will also change the batteries in their smoke detectors. In Arizona, where they don’t believe in Daylight Saving Time, people mark the day by putting fresh ammunition in their handguns.
The United States observes DST beginning on the second Sunday in March; the European Union on the last Sunday in March. Tunisia, Bangladesh, and Fiji have joined Arizona and no longer observe Daylight Saving Time. We do not know if these counties also concur with Arizona’s denial of Climate Change, Water Fluoridation, International Law, and Evolution.
We don’t know why Arizona rejects Daylight Saving Time. Perhaps the state’s many retirees can’t figure out how to change the time settings on their old VHS machines.
