Let's Just Recall Apple Pie and Be Done With It

Roger Clemens facing charges for lying to Congress. Considering that our Congress is a collection of politicians, that's sort of the pot calling the kettle black, isn't it? Who in the world do these people think they are, to tell someone else, they can't lie? Isn't lying what Martha Stewart went to jail for? Sending liars to jail? What will become of our political campaign season? Besides, with a bad economy and uproar in the Middle East, not to mention the Gulf and BP, doesn't Congress have anything else to do? All this hou-ha over baseball always makes me think of the big cocaine mess in the 80's, Pete Rose, the strike, and Barry Bonds . . . With the overpaid athletes and tanking economy, the average dad can't afford to take his son to a ball game, anyway. I'm at the point of just coming out and asking, when it comes to baseball, "Who cares?" It hasn't been the sport of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Hank Aaron for years. So, here's what I recommend to Congress. In all the food mess, let's rethink our baseball and apple pie image of ourselves and get real about representing "we the people." We'll worry about our own entertainment and dessert and these men that cheat with physical enhancement, will pay a greater price than Congress can set forth, anyway. Meanwhile, it's election season, Congress, do something besides make promises you don't intend to keep. Even though you may call it campaigning, we the people call it lying!
