"I support opening up these regulations and Sunday sales would be one of the things I support," Granholm said. "I think a lot of the concerns alcohol that existed in the prior century are a bit anachronistic. I think people should be left to their own judgment about when to purchase alcohol."

This whole law is sad. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like to drink on Sunday mornings as much as the next guy but I can't imagine feeling strongly enough to fight *for* the law or *against* it. I just buy whatever I need for the *weekend* on Friday afternoon. It's not that hard, people!
