I should probably start out by saying I’m not entirely sure what to make of the readiness with which doctors prescribe a pill for anything and everything. This is mostly based on my observations and what I’ve heard. I’m not a doctor (though I want to be) and I’m trying to understand this as best as I can given my relative lack of medical knowledge. Yet my gut instinct is to say that doctors are all too willing to find a condition to fit a pill, or a pill to fit a condition (and for everything else, an antibiotic). This seems to especially be the case with psychiatric conditions. Everyone that’s depressed seems to be prescribed pills. I concede that are some that legitimately need medication in order to function, but for the vast majority, it seems unnecessary.
I’m going to stick with antidepressant/stimulant meds for this one. Fibromyalgia and antibiotics deserve their own post.
I am a huge Yankee fan, and while my gut instinct is to forgive and forget his transgressions, his attempt at an apology seemed wholly lacking.
It’s not like he singlehandedly destroyed the sport, the sport was already tainted by those that came before him (Bonds, McGwire, Canseco, et. al.). Yet his status as one of the greatest home-run hitters of all time sheds a particularly unfriendly light on him and his sin of steroid use.
What do you think? Should he be booted from the Yankees? Should his records be nullified?
