It's called Daylight Saving (not Savings!) Time

One more for the list of things that may eventually send me over the edge: people who say "Daylight Savings Time."

Not Savings. Saving! There's no s on the end of it. Is this so tough?

I can deal with regular folks saying it, but the newscasters and their ilk should know better. Of course, these same people tend to be literacy-challenged in general, so there's no reason this should surprise me!

Sadly, it is no onger possible to look to media types on either side of the camera or microphone for decent English. My most egregious recent example: "The dow declined 27 points today but is still positive for the week with no lossage."
