« Evidence Mounting against Mike Vick | Main | Can't miss events »

May 30, 2007



Hey Brent, you missed an opportunity to roll pols into this!

Check this out:

US REP Tom Lantos (D-Calif) joined the cause against Michael Vick, firing off a letter Friday that urged NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to "act swiftly and forcefully" . He pointed out that he's a senior member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which two years ago held highly publicized hearings on the use of performance-enhancing drugs in professional sports.

In a not-so-subtle threat of possible congressional action, Lantos reminded the commissioner of his committee's efforts to weed out those who use performance-enhancing drugs. "I also suggest you educate your players on the illegality and cruelty of dog fighting to prevent this from happening again," Lantos wrote. "It is my hope that the issue of animal fighting will not require us to further investigate the behavior of your athletes."

(if that's not a pol throwing his weight around, I don't know what is! I hope Lantos follows through w/ this threat!)


The black building thing was new to me too. Strange but interesting. I'll be watching for black outbuildings from now on...sigh...

I wonder about Poindexter (is that really his name) too, since you pointed out his activities.
