Congratulations, Hoosier lawmakers. South Carolina is now less backward than Indiana:
For the first time in Columbia, stores were able to sell beer and wine on Sundays. Some people didn't waste anytime getting in line to buy.
"You might want to sit back, watch a game or something and drink a nice cold one. Sales will be picking up," said Dennis Best.
Best and hundreds of others flocked out for the first time and bought beer and wine on Sunday in the city limits of Columbia.
The ban on Sunday liquor sales is one of the few remnants of blue laws that uncofrtably intertwined government and religion. It's time to get rid of it.
