But Where Would You Get That Can of Cranberry Sauce At the Last Minute?

In the fine spirit of giving thanks for the many blessings in our lives, the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office is investigating whether supermarkets opened on Nov. 24 -- Thankgiving Day -- in violation of the Commonwealth's long-standing Blue Laws prohibiting such crass commecialism (Christmas and New Year's Day receive the same protection).  If such a law were in effect in my home state (Michigan), it would have prevented two last-minute trips to the store and made for one unhappy group of diners who much appreciated the home-made, deep dish apple pie that is the best around.  An AP story (here) discusses this important use of investigative resources.
