We so want to cling to our piety, but can't stand it when it interferes with our current lifestyle.
Alcohol sales had always been banned till noon on Sundays in deference to Church people, until the law was recently loosened to allow stores to sell beer before noon for the benefit of thirsty boaters, campers and golfers....Now lawmakers want to allow sports stadiums to sell the Devil's Brew starting at 11AM Sunday, in order to short circuit the ubiquitous "tail gate" parties ourside stadiums.
For years, liquor stores were closed on Sundays, and now that's been lifted.
Just what are we holding on to by keeping Sunday blue laws on alcohol, when nobody cares anyway ?
And a side note to the temperate in the world. While I don't participate, I think the allure of tailgate parties is not abated by being able to buy overpriced beer in the stadium....Just my observation, for what its worth.
