What were they thinking?, Part Two

A number of local papers reported on the recent tragic death of a 29-year-old adult film star because of his steroid abuse. Maybe I'm overly sensitive to the way it was covered, but it seems that as much or more was said about how great he looked dying at 29 (!) as about the consequences of his abuse of steroids. I have to say, I'd never heard of the young man before his death was announced, but his was not the first, nor I fear, the last, casualty of steroid abuse I'll hear of.

Given a choice between "dying like Elsie" or living, I think I'll choose the later.
