I've been thinking for a few days about the baseball/steroid scandal. Baseball is my favorite sport (or my second passion, after writing) and this upsets me a great deal. I know some of the reaction has been ho hum. My feeling is pretty simple. Bonds, Giambi, anyone who did them, they cheated. That's no different than what the 'Black Sox' did. Cheating is cheating. They've made a mockery of their sport and chosen profession. Show them the door.
Deferring to my esteemed collegue Polly, I will revise my statement to say: when Bonds et al are proven to have taken steroids, then show them the door. Innocent until proven guilty and all.
