Brickbat: Too Soon?
After Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton signed into law a bill that legalized Sunday liquor sales, liquor-store owner Jim Surdyk emailed customers to say he'd be open on Sunday. OK, the law doesn't take effect until July 2, but Surdyk figured if the legislature and the governor are all in favor of Sunday sales, why wait. An official with the state licensing agency felt differently. He hit Surdyk with several citations that could bring an estimated $3,500 in fines for selling on Sunday.
