about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

Let baseball take care of baseball issues. Congress has more important business to take care of than to have another hearing about baseball. Fans that don't like what is going on in the game should quit attending, watching or buying. A large number doing that will get something done. Why would a player knowing the rules and consequences of violating them not be barred from the game for life if found in violation?

Jock worship has gotten out of hand with all the grade school mentality that little Johnnie or Suzie made a mistake but basically is a good kid so we will pass them even if they can't read or write.

Bravo Clay. Today's cartoon is a Weiner.

Why? Because A-Rod, unlike Anthony Weiner, doesn't have the balls to sext. Ba dum bump.

And if you think about it, the money saved by his suspension could be used to lower beer prices. Whoo hoo.

HA--The next 'super storm' that barrels up the Atlantic should be called Hurricane A-Rod - it'd never hit anything in October. New Jersey's gov. Christie however might not like that much needed improvements passed them by.

Narcissists have always been around, obviously, but they've never been so emboldened since Bill Clinton. Spitizer, Weiner, A-hole, Clinton, Alec Baldwin, OJ, Kanye West all feel they're above it all.

It is important business when so many children think they can get to the bigs the same way, or that it's at least worth the risks involved.

Lifetime bans would get rid of the cheaters and cause celebrations among the fans. Unfortunately the union would fight it to the death.

How can anyone paid upteen millions to do what they enjoy doing and being the best they can legally be do something so stupid? All they have to do is follow the rules and set a good example. There needs to be a huge fan uprising of fans by boycotting, objecting loudly and demanding better behavior of their hero. but more importantly the heros' of their children and grand children. Children need to grow up knowing the consequences of bad behavior and bad decisions are severe and life altering. Too many good athletes are prima donnas thinking they can get away with being bad. The majority of good athletes are very disciplined, committed to the game and realize the influence they can have on others.

PT...I think you are right. Those players that do right, which is the majority, would probably support a life time ban of those that cheat and don't follow the rules.
