Congress should run the country, not baseball
This is an open petition to the Congress of the United States of America. Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution states all the powers of Congress and, by extension, its duties, but fails to list regulation of Major League Baseball as one of them. See for yourself: www.archives.gov/national-archives-experience/charters/constitution_transcript.html Meanwhile, the US is embroiled in an unending military action in the Middle East, US educational performance test results have slipped again, an estimated 750,000 citizens are homeless, US crime rates per capita rank 8th in the world, the dollar continues to lose ground in the world market, and the recent interest rate cut made investors so afraid of the US economy that stock markets plunged the most since 9/11. But steroids in baseball is clearly a congressional issue! Congressmen and Congresswomen, stop trying to play on your perception of the public\'s hot topic and pandering for votes. Believe it or not, most of us don\'t care enough about steroids and baseball to be impressed by your efforts. Let the courts deal with it. It may be harder, by try to fix the country\'s economic and social problems. Then you might be worthy of keeping your jobs. Do Your Job.
