Congressional Resolution

I decided to browse the Thomas - U.S.Congres website this morning just to see what Congress is up to. The first thing I found was that yesterday, the House passed H. CON. RES. 59, a resolution "Recognizing the contributions of African-American basketball teams and players for their achievements, dedication, and contributions to the sport of basketball and to the Nation."

Like all resolutions, this one comes complete with plenty of "Whereas" statements, 16 to be exact, and follows that with several "Resolved" statements.

Now, I love basketball (I was a varsity high school basketball coach for ten years), and I realize that resolutions of various kinds are passed all the time. Still, it struck me that maybe Congress would have more important work to do than this.

But, maybe not.
