In this podcast, my third attempt at podcasting, I discuss the airline industry's opposition to proposal in the US Congree to extend Daylight Saving Time by four weeks. Here are links to the the articles discussed in the podcast:

Daylight-saving plan has critics burning: Lawmakers having second thoughts after extending period by two months By DAVID IVANOVICH, July 20, 2005, Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle Washington Bureau

I should also mention that the practice of Daylight Saving Time has major impacts on leisure and recreation opportunities in the summer months. With more daylight hours, people are able to participate and enjoy outdoor recreation more than would otherwise be possible.

Hope you are enjoying the daylight!
