I firmly oppose your position. I don't want the sun coming up at 4:15AM.
I believe jurisdictions in latitudes above 45° should change the clocks 4 times per year to take advantage of summer evenings while retaining "standard" time for winter so children can get to and from school in daylight.
I'd move forward one hour on the first weekend in March, another hour on the first weekend in May, move back one on the first weekend in September and another on the first weekend of November.
The fact that some people claim they can't handle a minor clock adjustment when their bodies already adjust to the changing light of seasons and weather and to different sleep/wake patterns 104 times per year (the Friday-Saturday and Sunday-Monday transitions) makes me think some people just like to complain.
