    Hopefully we can put everything here instead of the dozens we've had on various subjects.

    And the big story of the day:

    What a joke. Those gladhanding famewhores in Congress want Clemens to bow before them in an election year.
    I can think of a few more important things for Congress to worry about. Getting our troops out of Iraq. The health care crisis. Oil. Keeping Social Security solvent. Balancing the budget.

    There really are more important things Congress has to worry about than steroids in baseball. Let baseball do its own dirty work, however slowly and painfully bad it might be. Focus on something more important to the country.

    Well, if they want to pass a bill on that, I'm game. But who the fuck obeys all the laws anyway?

    Mr. Clemens and Mr. Pettitte, meet Mr. Fifth Amendment to the Bill of Rights.

    Nothing's more important than getting facetime and acting tough . . . except, of course, getting those fat contribution checks from lobbyists.

    [suzyn]Roger Clemens is in Congress and Roger Clemens is testifying. Oh my goodness gracious! Of all the dramatic things -- of all the dramatic things I've ever seen, Roger Clemens standing right in Congress announcing he took only vitamin injections in the butt! Roger Clemens is testifying! And there we go John, you don't have to worry about Roger Clemens having taken steroids. You should see what's going on in Congress! Big grin on California Democrat Henry Waxman's face! Andy Petitte knew, big-size Roger Clemens only took B-12! Attention fans! He is here, and now we don't have to discuss who takes what.[/suzyn]

    The one thing Yankee and Red Sox fans CAN agree on: Suzyn Waldman is a man.
