be careful what you wish for

I went through some old posts on another of my blogs and found this quote:

Let’s see…the situation in Iraq is deteriorating, tens of millions of Americans are uninsured, the public education system is a disgrace and Congress is debating…flag burning? It’s good to see their priorities are in order. I know that if I’m a guy with a son in Iraq, helping out a parent who worked for a company where the pension fund went south, and whose daughter can’t get a decent education, flag burning it what I think about when I wake up each day, and I’m glad Congress shares my priorities. But what I really want to know, if I’m that guy, is when our elected represenatives are going to have more hearings on steroid abuse in professional baseball.

It’s from Seth Greenland’s post on Huffington Post on June 22, 2005.
