Doping in high school football has been going on at least 30 years and still is. However, so far, no one has bothered to investigate and expose this. I know because (30 years ago) my son's coach told him in his junior year he'd only make the 'A' team if he took injections of steroids. I told my son he had to be kidding to even think of doing such. (He played on the A team anyway) An acquaintance related the same occurred to her son this fall. Why don't all sports organizations including public schools, colleges and professional, require drug tests?

Why don't we require all welfare recipiants pass drug tests too. We are paying for their bad life choices.

In some states they stae benefits will be cut off if drug or alcohol abuse is detected and in some cases they actually do conduct drug testing. I don't think tht is true for all states.

Another day. Another scandal. Another high-profile celebrity sits on Oprah’s couch to express contrition and to try to resuscitate his image. Today it’s Lance Armstrong, but tomorrow it will be someone else, which is why I believe it’s time to say enough. No more free passes for our children’s role models.

I don’t know Lance Armstrong personally, but apparently nobody else really does either. What I did know was the same constructed fairy tale that he sold all of us: the inspirational story of a young cyclist who nearly died from cancer and was resurrected through the miracles of modern medicine...
