And WE are not even near the western end of the time zone like those in,
say, Ohio, where the sun sets amost 60 minutes later on their clock, ET. 
Summers, EDT sunrise is around six and sunset is as late as 9:30 (great for
that time of year) but in winter, EST, kids go to school in the dark as
late as 8:15.  Imagine EDT all year with sunrise around 9 AM!  Daytimers
without presunrise licenses would miss AM drive altogether.
