The AP reported today that Barry Bonds was indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice. Ding Dong! Bye Bye Barry :wave:
Oh, yeah, I forgot--he's innocent until proven guilty.

I wouldn't order that keg just yet, Kate. Bonds will play the race card - which he's very practiced at - and get Sharpton, Jackson, et al on his side. Evidence? what evidence? :uhh:
pardon me if I sound like a cynic. :moon:

Actually, my recollection is that he admitted injecting substances, and thought it was flax seed oil or some nonsense like that. As far as the obstruction part, I'm fuzzy on what he did.

I'm patient. http://www.millan.net/minimations/smileys/napsmileyff.gif (http://www.millan.net)
Did anyone really think he would get indicted? Just that alone gives me a small sense of satisfaction. :)

I still feel badly for Hank... :(

Hank lost it earlier than he should; but Arod's almost certainly going to pass both Aaron and the Steroid guy. If Arod plays to age 40 (which isn't even the end of the contract he and the Yankees have just about agreed to) and averages 28 HR's per year from here on out he's on top, assuming the Steroid guy is too busy breaking rocks next April :aparty: of course.

So they've been investigating for how many years, at what cost? I hope that, if found guilty, they will fine him enough to recover government costs--probably in the millions by now. He can also pay for his incarceration. I don't want to pay for it.

The criminal justice system is not designed to be self sufficient. Police, Courts, Prosecutors, and Jails all suck money out of the system and criminals put none in. The concept of really rich criminals paying and making up for all the poor criminals is interesting.
I'd would have like to have imposed a fine on Martha Stewart for millions then.
One last note--
Barry Bonds now joins the likes of Pete Rose, albeit without the bad haircut.
