THIS WEEK IN WAR BASEBALL (war is supposed to be crossed out; wheres strke thru text?)

Congress is bitching again, trying to make it look like they’re doing something.
But they don’t give a damn; career politicians know it’s a scam.
But do they know this is real? And realize the power they wield?
I don’t think they care that they’re shipping kids to battlefields for a war without reasons.
And the media doesn’t care or dare to ask questions that should be hanging in the air.
Who cares…..? whatever sells more advertising time.
And is george bush high? We should probably get him tested.
Neh never mind…. Instead let’s try to get steroids out of baseball, cameras out of 
football, fixes out of Bball, yeah just ignore this week at war and flip it over to sports center.

    If our Governments/politicians appear to be taking no notice on major issues, it makes it difficult for the country to see its importance.This said, I'm not saying it isn't important what's going on in the fields, because it is greatly so and in my opinnion our boys should not be there at all. Congratulations on this piece being featured this week, kindest thoughts, Anna-Marie.

    "Take me out to the ball American as apple pie..." Nice write. It captures the idea that even though there are a lot of important issues before us, it is all too easy just to sit back and ignore...Seems most of us feel helpless to do anything about it anyway...Am I close? God bless you. Congratulations on your being featured this week... Always, Dane
