'Roid Rage


Anybody wondering where the hell President Bush's call to end steroid use in sports came from? Join the club.

Reps from baseball and football don't know what Bush is talking about, although drug czar John Walters does fess up to a recent long talk with Bush about drugs and sports. The gist seemed to be that the pro leagues could be doing more to stop drug use but are not. Testing, suspensions, and bans evidently are mere window-dressing. Then Walters cryptically concludes it is up to the leagues to solve their own drug problems.

"It's not a government responsibility." Walters said. Just like everything else mentioned in the SOTU, then?
