Senate Prepares to Tackle Really Major Issue

I guess things will be really slow around Washington next week. Seriously, there isn't anything more pressing than the college football BCS?
The Senate plans to hold a hearing next week looking into antitrust issues surrounding college football's Bowl Championship Series.

It will be the second hearing on the BCS held on Capitol Hill this year, following a contentious one in the House in May.

The Senate Judiciary Committee Web site says the hearing will be next Tuesday in the committee's subcommittee on antitrust, competition policy and consumer rights.

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the subcommittee's top Republican, had sought the hearing. His office did not immediately return telephone and e-mail messages.
Not that the geniuses at the NCAA who run the BCS have got it running smoothly, but I have more faith they can run their sport than the U.S. Senate can.

Senator Hatch ought to find something more constructive to do with his time than continue whining that the University of Utah was unfairly denied a spot in the BCS Championship last year.
