That's a nice way of dodging the issue. Of course, the one thing “you know” that you didn't address, for obvious reasons, was that Barry Bonds, according to the President and CEO of BALCO, received steroids. I'm sure it was all innocent, that he was just holding them for a friend, and that it's normal for men in their late 30s to gain 40 pounds of muscle while losing body fat. You guys are worse than Pete Rose fans. Oh, but attendance is up, that's all that really matters, eh? Sure, by that standard then McDonald's is better than any 5-star restaurant. Wake up and face reality, for a change.
Of course, what “I know” is that Victor Conte is alleged to have named names. This allegation comes from an anonymous source, (just like you), is backed by no notes or tape recordings, and has been denied by Conte and his attorneys from minute one.
Hmmmm… I guess the prosecutors wouldn't stoop
so low as to slander the names of the men they think are guilty. Sure, they would never be so under-handed to try and win their case in the court of public opinion before they take it to the courts, right? Right. What “I know,” is that everything we've read about the BALCO case to date is one big pile of bullshit, innuendo and insinuation.
Wake up and face reality? I'll tell you what reality is; reality is a society that is waging a destructive “War on Drugs,” a war that has no boundaries or limits. The reality is that Bonds may or may not have used steroids; but you and I are in no position to “know” anything about it. The BALCO case is all public relations until someone is talking to a judge.
Oh, and by the way, if you think OBM hasn't adressed the Bonds situation regards BALCO, you haven't been here very long.
Update: Another John has posted another great comment. AJ, send me an email. I want you to write for OBM. You have the right stuff.
