We note that Barry B*nds of San Francisc* has hit his 756th home run. There is a continuing controversy over whether his record is tainted by use of steroids. Some have suggested that the record be marked forever with an asterisk. This would unfortunately be hard to implement. Our solution is simply to incorporate the asterisk into his name. This will save ink if nothing else. Of course, because his team has failed to step up to the plate (seemed like the appropriate metaphor) and chastise him for cheating, we will henceforth apply the same style to the name of the San Francisc* Giants.
