        On the other hand, I get up an hour early because I am addicted
 to eating. I have to mesh my activities with other folks, and they
 start work at a time that is an hour earlier in the summer. Grocery
 stores, Pharmacies, movie theaters -- things that affect my schedule --
 all shift. It is moronic to not juet get up in sync with the activities
 and schedules that make up my life.

        If you think  it is nonsensical, I truly feel sorry for you. It
 must be lonely out where you are.

        And so, yes, I sleep a little less in spring, and get an hour
 extra in the fall. Not  because I am a slavef to the clock, but I am
 not geeky enough to think I live on an island, entire of itself.
