Today, for the first time since well before my father was born (Colorado went dry even before prohibition was enacted), it was legal to buy liquor and wine and real beer on a Sunday in Colorado. I've refrained (with one exception for a wedding present for someone who works in my building) from buying any since the law was enacted to partake of history today in a big way, at the Argonaut liquor store in Denver. Thank you Jennifer Veiga (my state senator and the bill's sponsor)!
The Rocky Mountain News appropriately, also editorialized in favor of ending Colorado's law blue law, the one banning car sales on Sunday. Ironically, its survival is attributable, in part, to the fact that it wasn't really a religiously motivated law when it was enacted in the 1950s, and remains a bit to cut costs and get time off today.
