It’s time to fall back

It’s that time of the year again, when bewildered students wake up to find that time has gone back an hour. As of 2:00 a.m. November 6, 2011, most people on the Northern Hemisphere witnessed their clocks jump back to 1:00 am.

The idea of Daylight Savings Time, conceived by Benjamin Franklin, has been a topic of much controversy. While we may not have Fall or the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful New England foliage this year, Brown students can at least enjoy an extra hour of sleep as they recover from a night of intense scrabbling. Facilities, on the other hand, will have the painful task of adjusting the clock on Carrie Tower.
