Are the fans buying Bonds?

Re "Bonds slugs home run No. 756 to pass Aaron," Aug. 8

It's a sad day in baseball history as No. 756 flies over the outfield fence. Hank Aaron, who suffered through racism as he daily put forth tremendous effort to break the Babe's historic record, has seen his record broken by someone who allegedly cheated his way to the top.

Aaron cannot grant him respect or shake his hand; he can only feel great anger inside and sadness at the travesty that took place in San Francisco.

Congratulations to Barry Bonds! Steroid use or not, breaking Aaron's record is commendable considering the number of fair pitches thrown to him.

I'll acknowledge Bonds' accomplishment despite the allegations and the character flaws, but as a Dodgers fan I'll never cheer for him.

So Bonds has broken the home run record. May baseball rest in peace.
