INQUIRING PHOTOGRAPHER

By JULES IRA RUBENSTEIN

Barry Bonds recently surpassed Hank Aaron as baseball’s all-time homerun leader. We asked readers if they will recognize this accomplishment amid the allegations of Bonds’ steroid use.

I don’t think he’ll be recognized as the homerun leader, because, unfortunately, Major League Baseball [took a] silent stance – they knew that players were taking steroids. Most likely, Barry Bonds is the most prominent of these and his record will always be tainted.

William Braswell

The man is innocent until proven guilty, and I hope it turns out that he’s innocent. Bonds’ record is good only if his steroid taking doesn’t show up.

John Dwyer

It’s definitely going to be tainted with the steroid problem. It was a big disgrace. I would recognize a more Babe Ruth-type of player.

Sylvia Kaye

I do recognize it. That was a long time ago, it’s in the past and he doesn’t have any more steroids in him [so] the record is legitimate, definitely.

Juan Vargas

I think he’s great. Maybe he did, maybe he didn’t – that I don’t know – but I know he’s great.
