Steroids in Sports

For the second time in about 2 months, leaders and former players of a professional sports league are going to testify in front of Congress' Leaders of the House Government Reform Committee about steroids in their sport. The NFL has been asked to address this issue in the same way that baseball was asked 2 months ago. Some of the questions I'm sure will be asked are: what is your steroid policy, what are the consequences, and why is still an issue in sports.

What I don't understand about this process is why Congress feels like there are no other problems in the country that need to be addressed before steroids. I know what steroids can do to people in sports and that it is cheating. I also see that more kids are using steroids in high school and that could stunt their growth but how does that cure cancer? How does that remedy illiteracy in this country? How does stopping steroid use in professional sports cure the real problems in our country? We are fighting a war overseas with people dying everyday and this is what Congress wants to talk about today? Give me a break. This is why the country can't take Congress seriously.

I agree. They should adress matters of more importance before worrying about steroids in sports. Sports is entertainmant, war is a real life issue.
