This week, the Roger Clemens verdict was announced which seems to have ended the battle over steroids, a stigma which has haunted the game of baseball for the past couple of decades. Words of American justice belong in the powerful vocabulary. They are easy to recall because your mental movie can create a film in the courtroom. One of the charges which Clemens was eventually cleared of was PERJURY. The prosecution failed to convict Clemens of giving false testimony in a Congressional hearing on the steroids matter. By making movies in your mind, you capture history and new words. This is a powerful boost to your education.
