No Medal for Tiger
It barely deserves mention, but in early December, Congressman Joe Baca (D-CA) dropped his effort to get Tiger Woods a congressional gold medal.
The reason why this is noteworthy? Because Baca’s change of heart follows a WashingtonWatch.com blog post calling the award of a medal into question. This is important evidence of the power of this blog, which need only combine with overwhelming public opinion to sway the direction of the nation’s public policies.
Self-congratulations, WashingtonWatch.com, for calling this important public policy issue!
The bill was H.R. 1244.
