"It's more than just sports," said Victor Conte, former head of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO), who supplied Marion Jones and other athletes with steroids. "Rappers are doing this. They're all ripping their shirts off with six-pack [abdominal muscles]. In mainstream movies and action hero type stuff, it's rampant."
The nimble news media went into full combat mode within minutes of the earthquake that struck the mid-Atlantic region Tuesday afternoon.
