Steroids in Baseball - Congress Gets Down to Business
The price of crude oil is $100 a barrel and we have no semblance of a coherent energy policy. We're in a quagmire in Iraq. And Bush is rattling the sabers over Iran.
So what's the U.S. Congress doing? In the House of Representatives, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is investigating steroid use in Major League Baseball.
Pictured at right is Rep. Henry A. Waxman, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. He represents California's 30th Congressional District, which includes the cities of Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Malibu, Westlake Village and West Hollywood, as well as such areas of Los Angeles as Beverly-Fairfax, Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Beverlywood, Topanga, Agoura, Chatsworth and Westwood.
Which explains why the Committee is investigating such an truly important matter.
