Many of you objected to my pooh-poohing of Congressional investigations into steroid use. You pointed to articles like this one about the unseemly and alarming death rate of pro-wrestlers, caused, almost certainly, by rampant steroid abuse:

USA TODAY's examination of medical documents, autopsies and police reports, along with interviews with family members and news accounts, shows that at least 65 wrestlers died in that time, 25 from heart attacks or other coronary problems an extraordinarily high rate for people that young, medical officials say. Many had enlarged hearts.

That's awful, but why should it be any business of the government? These are grown men, aware of the risks, and taking them, and dying young. It's their choice, their lives, their bodies. Leave them alone.
