The packies crunched the numbers and decided that the extra business they'd get from being open on Sundays doesn't merit the additional operating costs of being open every day of the week. They lobby to keep the ban Sunday sales so they don't lose business to grocery/convenience stores that are already open on Sundays. It's corporate protectionism that gets public support by masquerading as respect for the sabbath. This is courtesy of the same industry lobby that claims losing the monopoly on cold beer sales will increase binge drinking in minors, even though studies conducted by the excise police found that liquor stores are much more likely to sell to minors than grocery/convenience/drug stores.

Well, let's get a conversation started, then. Anybody have any thoughts on Indiana's weird hodgepodge of Sunday alcohol sales laws? Does anybody else think this is, besides being silly, unconstitutional on grounds that it is a tip of the hat to those religions that observe Sunday as their sabbath? Is it a good idea to send people who want a Sunday nightcap off to a bar (thereby guaranteeing an increase in drunk driving) rather than letting them safely booze it up at home? I have no dog in this fight -I'm trying to give the stuff up.

Yeah, to put it mildly, although strictly speaking, he wasn't in his bedroom, he was in a state park. He's yet another in the long list of "family values" Republicans preaching the evils of sex while nailing a staff member. Both are married to other people. I do feel sorry for the spouses. But Souder is just another hypocrite.

Yeah, don't care what people do in their bedroom. Isn't he in trouble and quitting for fooling around?

Not much going on here lately. Any thoughts on Mark Souder's self-destruction?

@ Tammeron : MichianaSkeptics.org is a good place to start.
