Baseball vs. Art
So with all of the talk about baseball and the frequency of a player’s use of steroids to enhance his game, I find it interesting that so much negative stigma is being associated with this whole thing. “Baseball players who use drugs are cheating” seems to be the general consensus of the fans.
But artists have been using drugs for centuries, and certainly no one says that a piece of art is less valid because its creator was stuffed full of coke or an adamant absinthe user. If anything, the drugs the artist uses are just part of his legacy, his superstardom. Hell, you might look at the difference between a drug using artist and a sober one by comparing Aerosmith’s Dream On and their more recent abomination Pink.
