As an old-timer, I am honored when asked for business advice. Because so much of the labor force has been idled, recent inquiries have come from Hoosiers with resumes in hand.

Sunday is the second-busiest grocery-shopping day of the week in Indiana, but there’s one product Hoosiers aren’t allowed to put in their shopping carts that day even though it’s perfectly legal the rest of the week. That’s because an archaic blue law prohibits carryout liquor sales on Sundays.

September 12, 2009
