Something Important

Please excuse this brief interruption of discussion of mundane matters like chemical facility security, but Congress is finally getting around to addressing the really important issues in America. Tomorrow the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection will be conducting a markup of HR 390, The College Football Playoff Act of 2009. The bill introduced by Rep. Joe Barton (R, Tx) would make it illegal to promote, market or advertise “any post-season NCAA Division I football game as a national championship game unless such game is the culmination of a fair and equitable playoff system”. With two other Republicans from Texas as co-sponsors, it is obvious that this bill was introduced long before it became obvious that a school from Texas would play in this year’s national championship game. Or maybe they just realized that Texas would be losing to #1 Alabama in that game…
