Shun, don't laud, 'Steroid' Bonds

I take issue with The Bee's editorial cartoon from Rex Babin of The Sacramento Bee lauding Barry Bonds (Aug. 11, Page B-5).

"Steroid" Bonds is a liar and a cheat. The very idea of Babin fawning over him is disgusting. What does that say to the youth of America — who aren't already screwed-up enough? That cheating is OK and even to be envied?

Perhaps Babin considers Bonds a role model for his own children (if he has any), but don't let him pass on his warped thinking to other youths. Bonds should be treated like the pariah he is.
