From the Associated Press:
NEW YORK — The New York Times reported on its website Thursday that federal authorities have decided to indict Roger Clemens on charges of making false statements to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.
What kind of a society indicts a baseball player while Blankenship, Blankfein, Dimon, and Hayward walk free?

"I could slit my wrists and people would cheer."
Same kind of society that passes laws protecting factory-farm raised animals while looking on the Iraq/Afghan debacle with slack-jawed apathy.
A country in rapid decline.
Bread and Circuses for one and all.
The country cannot indict part of their ruling class, because the sky would surely fall. They are too scared, so they offer a baseball player to the angry masses instead. However, Clemens is an arrogant SOB so he deserves to be taken down a peg or two, because at the end of the day he is a liar and a cheat.
I agree with Pat. The Wall Streeters and bankers deserve punishment, no doubt. But that doesn't dent my joy at seeing Clemens indicted. What I'd really like to see is him in a batter's box with a fireballer on the mound throwing at his head.
Common now Chuck,so he is a liar and a cheat,... in sport! who cares? I remember watching the circus that they called Congressional hearing, thinking... yeah, this "empire is turning to sands".
