Suspend the blue laws…permanently

Sunday blue laws in are suspended in Hackensack and Mahwah today because of Hurricane/tropical storm Sandy.  Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan wants  the state to suspend blue laws throughout the county today as well…but only for today.

Here is a better idea.  Suspend the blue laws permanently so consumers have choices seven days a week.  Sunday blue laws are a defacto establishment of religion.  If people want a “day of rest” they don’t need a law to take a day off.  For those of us who want to shop on Sunday, leave us alone.
