In What Do We Do Now? (March 28) Gary Smith seems sincere in his disillusionment and surprise about steroid use by major league ballplayers. Is he really so naive? News flash: It is not possible to gain the muscle mass that these guys have over the past decade without "help." Perhaps being a physician and former college athlete affords me greater insight into this, but among my sports-loving friends, we speak of this as common knowledge.

Smith has no idea what the nation's collective moral conscience is--and what's refreshing is, he doesn't presume to know. He asks and he gets answers that are as diverse and fascinating as one would expect from a variety of American citizens. Thank you, Mr. Smith, for your diligence and honesty.
I simply cannot believe that so many people feel that Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and the other suspected steroid users should have their records erased from the books because they allegedly had an unfair advantage. Come to Kansas City; we'll watch the Royals play the Yankees, and I'll tell you everything you need to know about unfair advantages.
