Steroids in the statehouse

I watched with interest the hearings being held on Capitol Hill with regard to steroids and their usage. First, I do not condone their usage by anyone. In the hearings, they are calling for any awards or titles won by an athlete to be taken away and to remove them from any Hall of Fame recognition.

Second, what will the Capitol Hill group do with the present governor of California? He admits to steroid use, so how about the title he won? How about the office he now holds – is he not to be held in the same light? Perhaps we have youth out there that look up to him as they do to our ball players. Wonder when the hearings will start in Sacramento? Soon? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
