So, when Dubya made his Major League Baseball opening-day appearance last week in Cincinnati, Rex Babin wound up throwing a high-and-tight fastball at his head of state. Bob Gorrell's adaptation of Peanuts was crackerjack, and the Frist pitch on immigration was a softball even I could hit over the border. Rob Rogers reminded us that as threatening banned substances go, enriched uranium tops anabolic steroids ... and if the forces of nuclear nonproliferation strike out, it could be the old ballgame.
