Steroids in baseball
In perusing ESPN and CNNSI.com, the breathless coverage over steroids in baseball draws out one distinct thought in me: Who gives a flying F***?" As comedian Doug Stanhope says, "You paid to watch balls fly around, who gives a damn what makes them go." Congress still hasn't held any hearings on the Justice Department attorney purge, you might remember the folks who wouldn't indict political enemies (Democrats) on dubious grounds. Congress also hasn't found the time to look into war profiteering in Iraq, yet they are concerned about overpaid jocks who stuck needles in their asses five years ago. Are you kidding me? Above all else, the whole topic is boring. Move on, I think Britney just got sprung from hanging out with McMurphy and Nurse Ratched. There's a story.
