A letter to Barry Bonds

After reading wrveres' letter to the Chronicle I decided to write a letter to Barry Bonds.

Mr. Bonds,

I feel for you Barry, I really do. But does the media always have to be your scapegoat? I’ll be the first one to say that as a whole they are a ravenous swarm of parasites looking for any sort of spectacular story, and if they can’t find that they’ll sensationalize the mundane, but you left yourself open to most of these jabs homeboy. Is it the media’s fault that it hurts your family when they report you had a mistress? No, it’s the fact that you had a mistress in the first place that is corrosive. For you there is always an excuse, and in your own mind it’s never your fault, and there is always someone else to blame. Accountability man, look it up.

I know you sometimes like to bring up racism, but believe me when I say that people don’t dislike you because you’re a black man, but rather because you are, for lack of a better term, an astatically arrogant pile of human feces. If you care so much about the issue then you would realize that America already has enough racial bitterness without coddled people like yourself trying to ratchet it up for your own selfish ends.

Of course I wouldn’t feel right ending this on such a sour note, so allow me to say that I have immense respect for you as a baseball player. You will easily be the greatest player I will have had the privilege of witnessing first hand, but I have to wonder if the differentiating measure separating you from the upper echelon of legends and the mid tier came out of a syringe.

Sincerely,
Christian Keegan

Ummmmm I don't think thats a word... the closest thing I could come up with is aesthetically. If that is the case, you just said he is a very attractive and arrogant pile of human feces :-?
