Thanks for ruining a perfectly good issue with your 2005 NASCAR Preview. In the future please stick to covering human-driven sports and let the auto magazines cover machine-driven sports.

What is all the fuss about steroids in baseball (Reason to Believe, Feb. 21)? Why would anyone in baseball tell the truth about steroid use? Since the home run has put fans in the stands from the time of Babe Ruth, does it make sense for owners or players to blow the whistle when doing so would mean loss of revenue? The hue and cry only reinforces the belief that Jose Canseco's book is right on. I wish I didn't feel this way, but if the Red Sox can win the World Series, anything could be true.

History will be very kind to Canseco because he has done a massive favor for future athletes. He has done more to clean up baseball than Bud Selig and the players' union ever could, or wanted to. There are hundreds of current major leaguers--very quietly--saying, "Thank you, Jose."

Too bad Canseco can't ask Lyle Alzado if he felt that steroids and human growth hormones "stop the aging process, or at least slow it down by 90 percent."
