Editorial: Voters should decide Sunday closing law's fate
One of the perverse joys of living in North Dakota is trying to figure out what is and isn't legal on Sunday. It's legal to have your car fixed on Sunday, but not to buy a car. It's legal to buy soup on Sunday, but not to buy a can opener before 12 noon. It's legal to buy clothing...

Editorial: Crucial help for single mothers and their children
