The Slice

When stores were closed on Sundays

If you are old enough to remember that, you are not young.

Even though I believe in freedom from religion, it could be argued that the closed-Sundays laws had a civilizing influence on society. Of course, it's not like I avoid stores on Sunday.

Still, there is no denying the power of nostalgia.

It probably would not surprise you to hear that "Man in a Hurry" is considered by many to be one of the best episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show."

That's the one where the rushed businessman with an expensive automobile can't get anyone to take a look at his car when he has engine trouble while going through Mayberry on a Sunday. No doubt you remember the lesson he learns.
