    You’re better off smacking them with it.

    If you’ve ever taken an Aspirin to cure a headache so you can go to work you’ve taken a performance enhancing drug.
    If you have any medical prescriptions that replace anything that your body no longer produces you"re taking performance enhancing drugs.
    The point here is, it’s the context in which you take them, and whether society finds that context acceptable.

    If we all stop giving the guy any publicity, he’ll disappear soon enough.

    Whoa there, Alexi- that’s a poor equivocation argument. We’re not talking about a drug to heal an injury or malady. We’re talking about gaining a physical advantage through chemical means that is a clear violation of rules spelled out for him all his professional life. We’re talking about severely injuring the careers and lives of those who tried to bring the truth to light. We’re talking about financial gain under false pretenses. The context is that he cheated and lied about it. Period.

    And no fair wearing “Red Ball Jets” (“Run faster! Jump Higher!”). I can remember that from around Second Grade, yet I can’t remember to take my gloves in the morning. Maybe I should make a rhyme about it.

    .
    Cold hands, warm heart
    Does no good the day to start.
    Wear your gloves unless it pass
    Your fingers freeze, you silly a—.

    I agree with you to a point. All kinds of chemical substances we commonly use are technically considered drugs. Caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, even large doses of sugar –all enter the blood to affect us and supposedly help us cope.
    .
    Caffeine is probably the world’s most popular accepted drug. Even children are exposed to it. Other cultures have their enhancing chemical substances, including coca, khat, and betel nuts.
    .
    I used to take pride in a drug-free existence. But I’ve found recently, after years of sneering at people who require coffee each morning, that I require it, too. It’s the only thing that relieves my Monday migraines. It constipates me and stains my teeth, but taking caffeine is way better than those sick headaches.

    Whether I use coffee or aspirin or society recognizes them as legal but not others (except certain states, lol) isn’t the real point. The man committed to playing a game by certain rules and cheated on the game. Not only did he cheat his direct competitors but also anyone who ever bought or bought into his books. There are also, it seems likely, many young people who idolized and hero-worshiped him. His actions do not affect only him so if he is now mocked and ridiculed and scorned as much as he was worshiped that seems fitting. Good comic.
