It is a new world

Starting Sunday Hoosiers will be able to buy carry-out beer, wine, and liquor at grocery, convenience, and liquor stores on a Sunday for the first time in 202 years. You read that right, Sunday alcohol sales had been banned as long as Indiana has been a state. You can only get cold beer at a liquor store though. I’m not sure why we still regulate by temperature. One thing at a time.

I would have cared a lot more about this change a few decades ago. Since I drink about six beers a month now, it really won’t change my life.

You still cannot buy a car on Sunday.

In one aspect, we have modernized anyway.

Never was a problem when I lived there. I guess planning for the week is an old fashion idea. I remember when everything was closed on Sundays and Wednesday afternoon. I am not sure what we have is progress, it is a result of piss poor planning ability in the current generations.

Now we have factories where it is not uncommon to have production workers running 7 days 10 hours.
I miss blue Sundays.

It has never bothered me either. I knew if I wanted beer for Sunday I needed to purchase it Saturday. Not a big deal.

It's nice that the car lots don't have salesmen on them one day a week. I don't have a problem with that at all.

I too like car lots closed on Sundays. One can look at cars in peace.
