Gladwell on the War on Drugs in sport

I'd recommend the quick read of these two articles by Malcolm Gladwell:

http://gladwell.typepad.com/gladwellcom/2008/01/war-on-drugs-co.html

Malcolm always takes an interesting position on issues that I find appealing.

I love the closing remark: "I realize that the people running major league baseball and the NFL are not philosophers. But the intellectual sloppiness with which this current crusade has been conducted is appalling."

If you haven't checked out his books, Tipping Point and Blink, I'd encourage you to do so.
