Amped Up on the Op/Ed Pages

From baseball to bicycling, this week the whole world was transfixed with athletic controversy. Both sports have had a rough past few years with doping scandals, but this week was killer: Americans watched as Barry Bonds got a nice birthday present, when a steroid chemist claimed the slugger was on the books for buying performance enhancing drugs; and the Tour de France continued, amidst swirling rumors, after the Kazakhstan team tested positive for illegal blood transfusions.

What better topic this week for war-weary cartoonists? Bonds is already a caricature, and the Tour de France is a Euro fixture. If these cartoons are right, the record books will be covered in asterisks before the summer is out.
