Ugh! It's your editor's worst day of the year. The 23-hour day. As if we didn't have enough time as it is!

For folks crossing the border, it’s a resumption of a twice-a-year headache. Mexico doesn’t switch to DST until the first Sunday in April, which means a one-hour time difference for binational folks.
Most of Arizona, meanwhile, ignores Daylight Saving Time, further confusing travelers without automatic time-resetting devices.
Is it time to abolish the twice-a-year drill?
