Should the US Have Year-Round DST?

Moving the clock one hour forward could have some good impacts on people, according to a research by Steve Calandrillo and Dustin E. Buehler.

It suggests that when there is more sunlight in the evenings, people are more productive, less irritable, and be less prone to accidents on the road. Crime would also decrease since more crimes usually happened in the dark of night.

Of course, there are some disadvantages to DST as well especially if the US would implement it the whole year round. Nonetheless, it's still a matter of good time management. Whether it's DST or standard time, what people do with their time affects their productivity, health, and lifestyle.

What do you think? Should we stop "springing forward" and "falling back" and just have a perma-DST?

The northernmost states will be affected most. Young kids will be going to school in the dark. We tried it once. Why is it so difficult to use it? I don't get it.
