One more thing to thank George W. Bush for!

President Bush still hasn't learned to take responsibility or to apologize.

In his statement yesterday (Bush Troubled by Steroids in Baseball, New York Times, December 15, 2007) about the use of steroids in baseball there is no acknowledgement for his own culpability. For nine of the twenty years of the "Steroid Era" in baseball, he was owner of the Texas Rangers.

In his comments, there was no apology for his role as one of many owners who let a culture of drug use develop in the baseball leagues. Is it that he lacks memory of those dys, or is it that he has never, until now, had to take responsibility for his actions?

Yes, we must move on, but with a new commissioner who, like Kenesaw Mountain Landis, is independent of the team owners. Any votes for George W. Bush taking over in January 2009. I think not!
