Saving Daylight

Buried away in the 1,000 page energy bill that's cleared the House is a plan to extend Daylight Savings Time by two months. The Transportation Department figures that'll save Americans about 100,000 barrels of oil each day of the extension -- about 1% of what we use every day.

Farmers ain't none to pleased. They say it messes with livestock and makes it harder to tend crops. Cows stay on the same natural clock regardless of what time the folks down at the dairy are on. (ABC)
