Time Change and falling asleep at the wheel...

One more reason to watch out for cagers...

Time Change Can Trouble the Sleep-Deprived


SATURDAY, April 3 (HealthDayNews) -- The switch to Daylight Savings Time on Sunday -- when the clocks move forward and you lose an hour of sleep -- could be dangerous for people who already suffer from a lack of sleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation.

The NSF poll found 51 percent of Americans reported driving while drowsy and 17 percent reported falling asleep behind the wheel. Sleepiness is responsible for about 100,000 auto crashes in the United States each year.

"Most people will admit they don't feel as good when they get too little sleep, but research shows that the consequences of sleep deprivation are far more severe than most people realize," Richard Gelula, NSF chief executive officer, said in a prepared statement.

We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.

We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it.

- Edward R. Murrow

I wonder if you have to work late at the NSF office if they let you sleep-in the next morning?
