He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

Blue Laws--Why Not?

One county in New Jersey doesn't permit commerce on Sundays:

The blue laws have been in effect in Bergen County since the 1950s to give our citizens ... one day of rest from the traffic jams, noise pollution and accidents that are a nightmare on Saturdays and long weekends...

Six days give people plenty of time to be worker bees.
Clergy are exempt.
