So, I was all set to end my summer blogging vacation with a little ditty about the Baseball All Star Game and how it may show the first step has been taken toward a new, better era in baseball. There are an incredible number of first-timers playing, which I was going to connect to another trend-that of the younger teams doing surprisingly well this season-and surmise that the testing for steroids and-some say more importantly-amphetamines may be showing results with, surprise, surprise, a world where 27 year-old athletes perform better than 38 year-olds.
But then this came across my google home page and ruined everything:
It brings up a couple questions:
-Is bringing someone to this point really effective? Apparently the interrogators who pack up and leave don't think so. I don't know jack squat about interrogation-outside of an assistant principal's office, where I am a decorated veteran-but this stuff has been denounced as foolish and ineffective by those very few with actual wartime experience.
-Is this really who we want to be?
