Closing Time

In this week’s issue of The Weekly Standard, I complain about Europe’s Sunday blue laws. They were meant to encourage family time and church. But does anyone other than the elderly go to church in Europe? When I attended Mass at St. Hedwig’s Cathedral in Berlin, there were only a smattering of attendees. So you might as well open that department store. And while you’re at, open the supermarkets and pharmacies! That’s right—in countries like Germany and Austria, you cannot go food-shopping on Sundays. And if you need cold medicine, you’ll have to take a trip to the train station.
