Take Five

I’m old enough to remember when businesses in America were mostly closed on Sundays and holidays. We seemed to have taken a step backward as far as the labor movement is concerned because now it’s like the entire country is open 24/7. I wouldn’t call Denny’s a good model for modern society. In Spain most businesses are closed on Sunday with the exception of those catering to the needs of entertainment and dining. Of course, the Chinese variety shops are mostly open as well as many of the Pakistani green grocers but the Spanish take the day off. I happen to believe that the capitalist system can survive a break one day a week without the wheels coming off the whole machine.

Forget about the fact that many people here get an entire month off in the summer.
