This Week's Poll
The Indiana State Legislature has been asked to approve selling packaged alcoholic beverages on Sunday. Arguments for the change are that we are a free market and consumers ought to be able to shop conveniently. Also, some object to having government tell them when they can buy beverages. Arguments against the change are mostly that expanded competition from big retailers would make things tough for small liquor stores. What say you?

Please select one:
Anything that makes liquor easier to obtain is a lousy idea. I say no way. Leave the laws as they are.
No opinion.
