RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. It'll feel really good to sleep in a bit this Sunday. And it will do you good, too.

Possibly, they write, because of that extra hour of sleep. They also found heart attacks went up in the spring in the days after losing that hour. It's Morning Edition.
