Doug Peterson comments on Sunday Sales

Personal commentary
Doug Peterson writes:
I think Shannon Sexton has missed the whole point on the no sales on Sunday issue:

1 - If you need alcohol so bad that you need to purchase it on Sunday, then you probably have an alcohol addiction problem, and should not have any at all on any day!
2 - All five of our magistrates voted No on the Sunday sales. An individual cannot overrule the majority of the citizen's representative. We, the people, voted for each of the magistrates in our respective districts to represent us people, and they have done their job. Quite grumbling.

3 - In Kentucky, although not in many other states, Sunday is still the Lord's Day which we all should honor God in all our forms worship and reverence. Alcohol is not part of that, whether you be Christian, Muslim, Mormon or Hindu.
