Locks of Love receives twice the love today from Cowboys & Angles in Eagle-Vail. Carlie Harrison cut her hair and donated her ponytail for the second time in a little more than a year. While Terry Dinkin cut Carlies hair, Horgus cut Jeffrey Weddles hair and both were donated to Locks of Love.

Oh, the lofty issues the U.S. Congress has to deal with, like baseball and football. First, the august body created to check the awesome power of the president got to the bottom of steroid-use in baseball. Thanks to the congressional hearings, baseball is now free of cheating and performance-enhancing drugs and all other nasty things. Its not terrorism that keeps Americans awake at night, its illicitly-earned runs. Thankfully, we can now rest easy that record-breaking grand slam is an honest one. Now, the Senate is ready to vanquish illegal videotaping in football. Its not gas prices or stagnant wages that make American consumers pessimistic, its the possibility that professional football teams are getting a sneak peak at each others plays. Only when we can be confident that no one is getting a sneak peak at someone elses blitzes or buttonhooks can Americans once again reclaim the optimism and ingenuity we are world-famous for. But our lawmakers should not stop at either our national pastime or our most popular sport. There are other activities that need cleaning up, like competitive ballroom dancing. Hearings on whether some dancers are giving themselves an edge by wearing unapproved braces, bodysuits or girdles is long overdue. For some reason Congress continues to turn a blind eye to what a lot of avid three-legged racers have long known some teams are sneaking one, two and as many as three extra legs into the race.And what about co-ed, inner-tube water polo? When will Congress shine its light of justice on the ugly rumors that some players are filling their inner-tubes with a dose of helium to make themselves more buoyant then their opponents?Alas, we Americans will be forced to play our games in a putrid sea of cheaters and chemically-fortified freaks until our leaders step in. Lets hope they dont get distracted by trivial matters such as health care and climate change.
