I'll be blunt: "The only studies I've seen have been the opposite of what you claim. Can you point me to the specific one you have read which backs up what you say?" Your answer apparently is, "no." Why is that so hard for you to say? Instead, you pass me 184,000 hits from google? You consider that to be useful? > You can also easily do a search on the US Government's Document Management > Service using the keywords "Daytime Running" and you'll get an overwhelming > amount of information back also, some pro, mostly con.

And yet, the only clue you gave me previously was "about two years ago on the web". Thank you ever so much for clarifying now what sources you were using, I really appreciate it. I'm glad I don't work with you, I'm not much for "20 questions". > Oh, and if you find you disagree with some or all of the info, or find other > links to support your opinion, feel free to argue it with yourself, since > (as I stated several times already), I have no desire to, and will not any > further. I was looking for something to read on the subject, and you have given me something to start with now. Thanks. >> And I'll repeat my "and you still haven't shown me". > And I'll repeat that I wasn't interested in showing anybody anything to > start with. Well then, when I asked what you based your decision on (go back and read my extremely neutral wording, would you please?), you could have deferred at that point, neh? Or, a simple "It was so-and-so's study from a few yars back", or something, would have been so much better than "it was on the web 2 years ago". > I only asked a question of the group, but you seem to have > inflated your self-importance to the level that you think I must justify my > view to you to do so? No, I was trying to see if maybe there was some merit to your POV. It's this concept called "keeping an open mind". I'm still neutral on the subject, but you're certainly not real helpful about sharing information. > And people wonder why some folks respond so defensively to posts on subjects > like this.

Way to go. Wow, I wrecked all of Usenet, all by myself. > Daryl Thanks for the links, I'll go read about DRL's now. Maybe I shouldn't be driving around with my headlights on all the time. Dave Hinz
