Stop blaming the farmers for daylight saving time

So, you lost an hour of sleep this weekend because of daylight saving time? You’ll get over it, so settle down. You had the option of going to sleep an hour earlier and you blew it.

Around this time of year, it seems, the nation acts as if it never took a trip to a location just one time zone away.

Or maybe you’re one of those people who contemplates life while sitting on the backyard deck in June and thinks, “Gosh, I wish the sun would go down earlier in the summer.”

Things could be worse. You could be a farmer getting the blame for daylight saving time.

But, John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight set the record straight yesterday. Blame the Germans.
