Baseball writers will surely take delight in the fact that a federal judge unsealed hundreds of pages of documents that make-up the backbone of the case against Barry Bonds, but analysts here were hoping for a different result in the steroids investigation.

Not so much because we think people should go to jail for steroids use, but rather because it'd be nice to expose the hypocrisy and mania surrounding the very issue of cheating and lawlessness.

Let's face it: to many Americans, if you're not cheating, you're not trying.

Up until now there was about as much evidence of cheating against Bonds in the public record as there is of another, more celebrated, athlete.  Who, for some reason, hasn't had his career met with the same scrutiny -- not at least on these shores.

Yes, America, this guy probably cheated, too.


In honor of Black History Month we here at the Index present this special feature to keep you abreast of those happenings you'll only find in February.  Think of it as the TV listings at the back of Jet Magazine, but with fewer Tim Reid references.
