New Column on Implications of Tammy Thomas Guilty Verdict for Barry Bonds

I have a new column on relating to the guilty verdict last Friday in the trial of former U.S. Olympic cyclist Tammy Thomas, who was convicted on perjury charges stemming from the government's investigation into BALCO. I discuss the verdict in the context of the likely trial of Barry Bonds for perjury.

Both Thomas and Bonds allegedly obtained steroids through BALCO, and both, according to the government, lied under oath when denying they used steroids. Whether the evidence against Bonds is as strong as it was against Thomas is another matter, and I take that up in the column.

Hope you have a chance to check it out.


Funny how the only people doing time for using steroids have XX chromosomes.
