This is your Congress on drugs

Apparently, the Congressional hearings into Major League Baseball's steroids policy didn't provide enough opportunities for grandstanding and moralizing, so now Congress is looking into the NFL's drug-testing program.

''The percentage of NFL players who test positive for steroids is very low,'' [Rep. Henry]Waxman said. ''Is this because the policy is working or is this because players have figured out how to avoid detection?''

I don't know, Congressman; personally, I can't get past the fact that while millions of people go without health insurance, the government runs up huge deficits and the nation's Social Security system is heading toward insolvency, you are wasting your time making sure that men who play a kid's game aren't cheating. That, to me, is the bigger mystery.
