More on Steroids: Senator John McCain has issued an ultimatum to Major League Baseball: devise a plan for steroid testing or Congress will pass legislation. This is the latest act in the government's increasing involvement in the steroid debate, which began with President Bush's State of the Union address. It is good to see a national call for action on this issue, but at least one writer wonders, where were the players during this hearing? Is this like holding an investigation into a crime without calling the eye-witness? A number of senators attacked Donald Fehr and the players' union for condoning drug use in the sport, although Fehr defended baseball's drug policy.
