Now some of you might be wondering why congress would want to get involved in such a matter. After all, they haven't been able to figure out yet what happened to those WMDs, or all those millions in aid for Iraqi reconstruction, or even how a gay hustler can get a press pass to the White House. Why would they want to bother themselves with baseball? According to Congressman Henry Waxman, it's because baseball hasn't shown any desire to get to the truth of what happened so it's up to congress to do it. Congress, of course, is oh so good at getting at the truth. And also because- wait for it- won't somebody think about the children?
