Nixon gets blamed for alot but he is only partly responsible for a little temporary anomaly in daylight saving time. "On 4 January 1974, Nixon signed into law the Daylight Saving Time Energy Act of 1973. Then, beginning on 6 January 1974, implementing the Daylight Saving Time Energy Act, clocks were set ahead for a fifteen-month period through 27 April 1975." Daylight Saving Time has been used in the United States and in many European countries since World War I. If you really want to know the whole story check out this web site it is quite interesting: http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/index.html
