Oh listen to the little children – they’re rejoicing!

Congress has reached a compromise deal that will extend daylight-saving time in what is questionably being thought of as a way to save energy.

Yeah, whatever. It means a month more of after-work sunshine, which is all fine by me.

But I love this quote from Sen. Fred Upton on the fact that Halloween will now happen on daylight-saving time:

“Kids across the nation will soon rejoice,” said Upton, because they”ll have another hour of daylight trick-or-treating.

OK -

a) Trick-or-treating is supposed to be an after-dark activity. Otherwise it would happen on a Saturday afternoon.

2) Kids across the nation don”t watch CNN or notice anything that Congress does.

c) Do kids still “rejoice”? Seriously.
