It is a lot better now. I remember in the 70's my wife tried to buy panty hose on Sunday and they wouldn't let her. I thought she was going to explode.

Those were the days of the Blue Laws, it was stange, stuff like you can buy nails but not a hammer, a lot of crazy stuff.

What it really meant was some things could not be sold for 7 consective days, so stores started closing on Saturday and opening on Sunday... Really weird..

I heard some contruction guys talking at the pool hall last night. They were someplace in Tennessee in a bar playing pool on a Sunday. Well the jukebox was playing and one of the guys was kinda dancing with his cuestick. The bar owner rushed over and informed them there was a law against dancing on Sundays. He said "I'm serious, I could lose my liquor liscense" /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

referring to the law about urinating on the alamo, I think this was created because Ozzy Osbourne pissed on it. Don't ask why, I have no idea, but he was probably drunk. I didn't know about the wire cutters here in Austin. I'll have to be careful.

In 1969 Rockcastle County Kentucky opened their new courthouse. In the hallways, about every 30 feet there were signs: "No spitting in courthouse! $15.00 fine" /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif Really. I seen 'em.
