EDITORIAL TARNISHED HERO.
Once upon a time, San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds thrilled
fans with his record-shattering performance. What a shame it is that yet
more evidence of steroid use threatens to derail his
legend-in-the-making. A book by the two reporters who have written
extensively on the scandals surrounding performance-enhancing drugs in
baseball details very specific evidence of Bonds' steroid use,
which has long been rumored. If the book is correct - and there's
no reason not to believe it isn't - then yet one more of our sports
heroes has sadly traded the respect of the public for a chemical boost.
