Satirical Sunday 

To the editor,

I enjoyed the letter from one of your readers last week about the loss of peaceful Sunday mornings. At first I found it confusing, until I realized it could only be intended to satirize the level of debate on Sunday shopping. Then I realized the brilliance of the letter.

The writer's description of her vital Sunday morning trip to purchase a coffee from a coffee-selling establishment, followed by a description of how other people should not be allowed to shop for things like nails from the adjacent hardware store or cornflakes from the grocery store around the corner, was a hilarious send-up of the hypocrisy that is central to most opposition to Sunday shopping.

The next part, where she described her return home at which point she was nearly sapped of her free will and felt almost compelled to start working because more people than her coffee seller were also working, was priceless. Well done and thanks for the chuckle!
