Did you read the Chuck Klosterman article? I think he made some good points, although I'm still not sure what it means to rake a pitch with prejudice. As Klosterman points out it's b/c Bonds is the best steroid user that he gets the attention. None of the others are about to break the Babe's record.

As a steroid user myself -- asthma -- I have to agree that he's the best of them, if that's how we want to define him. I wonder how many 60s players, aside from Pete Rose, managed to escape the ignominy of using Reds? And then there's the Sandy Koufax conundrum. He needed steroid injections to keep pitching in the last several years of his career. Not the same ones that Barry & Co. are alleged to have used, obviously, but artificial enhancements nonetheless.

Oh, and aren't you glad your exam is over? You looked so tired today, we were very sympathetic. But you did a fine job despite looking like the bride of Edgar Allan Poe!

I am. I felt pretty shitty today but I think only because you told me I looked it. So I'm blaming you.

Naturally. Pretty soon you won't have to give this place or any of the people that inhabit another thought. Sweet!
